From Visp you begin the climb for a few kilometres in the valley that brings you to Zermatt and Saas-Fee along the river Vispa. You will pass near the small village of Ackersand that has the distinction of being the driest place in Switzerland. Just before Stalden, the road begins to steepen, and as you leave the village you turn right towards Törbel and the Moosalp pass. As you gain altitude along this vertiginous cliff-side road, the views before you become increasingly grandiose! Towards the summit, the pristine nature of this climb will not fail to make the Moosalp pass one of your favourite bike rides.
