Destination

Leukerbad

Turn-by-turn directions

At the first paved road, turn through Haus Lärchenwald and head towards the Weidstübli restaurant. Soon the terrain changes to gravel for a good 500 metres, and is followed by a climb through bright woodland that leads on to the Folljeret mountain pastures, and finally the Majingalp pastures. If you wish, you can make a stop at the mountain restaurant or climb another 2km to Flüealp, where the cheese and bread platters are an absolute must. The signposted descent is via the same route back to Leukerbad.
