The approx. 5-hour walk from Binn to Schaplersee is a scenic but little-used hike with the option of returning to either Fäld, Heiligkreuz or Binn.

The picturesque village of Binn, with its arched bridge dating back to Roman times, is part of the Binntal Valley Nature Park. The valley is known for its untouched nature as well as for its minerals, which is why it is a popular destination for those in search of minerals. Don’t miss the idyllic Schaplersee, located below the Binner Stockhorn at an altitude of 2237 meters above sea level in the midst of lush alpine meadows in a basin bordered by the Stockhorn to the east and the Hirli to the west. A very worthwhile destination, this beautiful mountain lake may well be blanketed in snow in July, and offers a panoramic view over the Saflischpass, Breithorn, Twingischlucht, Eggerhorn, along with the Schweifegrat with the Fülhorn, Rappehorn, Turbehorn and the Hohsandhorn.
