Cast your gaze across the expanses of the Rhone Valley and enjoy the splendid panoramic views of the 4,000-metre peaks of the Valais Alps.

Making your way across a single trail with an impressive view of the Rhone Valley and over the Valais mountain scenery, you will eventually reach Oberu and Bachalp.

Author’s recommendation

Have a rest at Bachalp, where some of the farmers offer little snacks. Otherwise you have a meal at the Trächu Hittu where you have to taste a Valais platter.
