Starting at Leukerbad, the Torrent cable car takes you to Rinderhütte, standing at an altitude of over 2,300 metres. The route starts off right next to the lift station and follows the Torrenttrail Bike route, a flowy single trail with panoramic views over the 4,000-metre-high peaks of Valais and the Rhône Valley. After a section along the slope contour with a few climbs, you reach the alpine pasture of Untere Feselalp where you begin the descent into the Rhône Valley. You pass through the village of Erschmatt, where you can learn how to make rye bread. In Steg, visit the recently built pumptrack before continuing your ride to Raron. When you get there take the cable car to Unterbäch, where you will spend the night overlooking the Rhône Valley and opposite the Bietschhorn. Option: Fancy some more downhill fun? The cable car takes you comfortably from Gampel to Jeizinen, where some varied trails await you.
