Route description

An impressive high-altitude hike around the Unter Frittenbachgraben awaits you. From Langnau i. E., follow the Trans Swiss Trail No. 2 towards Lützelflüh along the Ilfis. After 2.7 km, the "Alpenpanorama Weg" branches off to the right towards Lüderenalp. In the Dürsrütiwald forest, you can look out over the wide plain between the Emme and Ilfis rivers. Pre-Alpine and Alpine peaks line up above the forest ridges of Hohwacht and Churzenberg. Via Fluehüsli and over the Rotebühlegg you reach the unique Geilisguetegg vantage point. The route descends steeply through the forest to the farms of Ried. There are few hamlets in the Emmental with such an enclosed structure.
