The hike starts on the Simplon Pass in the direction of Nanzlicka. After the "Lengritz" you descend about 200m. Then the ascent to the Glishorn follows.
The descent from Glishorn to Mattustafel is steep, so be careful. It is important not to miss the beginning of the small path approx. 250 metres west of the Glishorn summit. From Mattustafel to Brig, you can either use the wide corridor road or continue down the very steep mountain path to Brig.
Arriving at the destination, one can enjoy the Glishorn, which rises in the south of the city, once again from below.
