This route connects the Turtmann valley region with the Moosalp pass at 2,044 metres in altitude. It consists of a long and steady climb whose first few kilometres take place in a forest with four consecutive hairpin bends. This is followed by a straighter section of route passing through pastures along the side of the valley. You pass through the villages of Eischoll, Unterbäch and Bürchen before reaching the final, much wilder section of the pass. The route remains narrow as it winds among larch trees, offering a view over Visp as well as the other side of the Rhône Valley. You’ll have the chance to catch your breath a little during the final level section on Bürchner Alp before reaching the summit of the pass.
