Description

Leaving Furi and all its restaurants below means you find the delightful little restaurant Hermetji perched on the side of the mountain, with beautiful views across Gornergrat, Sunnegga and Zermatt. Once you can tear yourself away from here, carry on up but look out for marmots and the odd chamois on the open land. The Schwarzsee lift is often open during the summer months and affords an easy way down to Zermatt, or alternatively can take you further up to Trockener Steg.

Difficulty

Moderate

Hiking along trails with some uneven terrain and small hills. Small rocks and roots may be present.
