Description

Beautiful walk starting in the village and crossing pastures, climbing up in the trees to the Edelweiss view before working your way up the valley gorge to Trift. Views over Zermatt and the Rimpfishhorn that you normally don’t get to see are stunning from here, and its a great place to start the walks over the Hohbalmenweg.

Difficulty

Moderate

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