Panoramic tour to Gspon: Simplon pass, Bistinen pass, Gebidum pass with view of the Bernese Alps and to the highest Swiss summit, the 4545m high Dom.
Distance 22.8 km
The hike begins on the Simplon Pass. Whether you start at Kulm, Hospiz or Restaurant Monte Leone, it doesn't matter. Already from a distance you can see the wide path in a northwesterly direction, which crosses the mountain flank to the Bistinenpass in an even gradient. On the Bistina, take the signposted path towards Visperterminen. In the upper Fülmoos, after having crossed the "Gamsa", you stay on the path towards the Gebidumpass. Continue above Visperterminen to Gspon.
Various hotels are available on the Simplon Pass as stage locations. A visit to the two lakes is worthwhile.
