Lötschental High-Elevation Trail

The 16.8-km-long Fafleralp-Lauchernalp-Faldumalp High-Elevation Trail is one of the most magnificent routes of its kind.

It runs through fragrant forests and over richly blossoming Alpine meadows. High above the walking trail, the glacier-covered Petersgrat stands in contrast to the verdant green of the forests and meadows, accompanied by the nearly 4,000-metre-tall mountain giant, the Bietschhorn.
