24.98 km


3:40 h


The starting point for this route is Gampel, from there a 10 minute cable car ride takes you to the village of Jeizinen. It begins with a demanding climb of around 800 metres, then continues with a gentle slope on an asphalt road to Untere Feselalp, where you can top up your energy at the "Trächu Hittu" alpine restaurant. Continue your ascent and cross Obere Feselalp to the highest point of the route, the famous "Heruhubel". The second part of this tour begins at the foot of the "Einig Alichji" and consists of a varied descent to the Rhone valley. Initially quite simple and with only a gentle incline, the route becomes steeper and more demanding, with a mixture of fluid and technical singletracks. Cross the two Meiggu mountain pastures and various mountain villages to Niedergampel. Not only will you enjoy the variety of trails, but also the view of the Lötschental and the majestic 4,000m alpine peaks.
