The first section is along the recently expanded trail to from Zermatt to Täsch and includes the last view of the Matterhorn. At Täsch, the beautiful Schalisee invites one to rest. The tour continues from Randa to St. Niklaus past the massive scree from the 1991 rockslide, a view of the Bis Glacier and over field tracks. From Kalpetran the cyclist continues along the historic road, past the still visible dry-stone walls, which are listed in Switzerland’s inventory of historic traffic routes (IVS), to Stalden. Afterwards it goes further down to Visp.
