Griesalp - Gamchi - Gspaltenhornhütte

It would seem that the journey by post bus to Griesalp cannot be bettered – after all, it is the steepest route of its kind in Europe. However, the hiker still has around four hours to discover the natural beauty of the UNESCO World Heritage Site on a straight pathway up to the Swiss Alpine Club hut at 2455 m (8054 ft.) above sea level.

From the Griesalp car park over the bridge, follow the signs towards Berghaus Golderli. Continue via Steineberg to Bürgli, past the alpine hut on the right and high above the gorge into the Gamchi to the alpine hut. The path continues over alpine meadows to the striking rock face. The hiking trail leads along the easy-to-walk rock path until the terrain opens up again and continues over the two metal bridges, up over the moraine to signpost Pt.2107. A last steep ascent leads left up to the Gspaltenhornhütte.
