The rather strenuous hike to the Seehorn is rewarded with a breathtaking view of the surrounding mountains and offers a tingling view deep into the Gondo Gorge.
The hike starts in the Zwischbergental, Bord. The ascent towards Furggu is on the Stockalperweg. The route is well signposted and you follow the brown "Stockalperweg" signs.
Once you reach Furggu, turn right towards Seehorn. The trail is very well marked. Through the Seehaltu forest you climb up to Seetole. There is a small lake here. Now the southwest flank of the Seehorn is clearly visible. With the goal in mind one hikes towards the Seehorn. The hike is also easy for those who are not free from giddiness. On the summit of the Seehorn one finds large meadows. Those who have vertigo should simply not step too close to the abyss.
Once at the top, you will discover the transmission mast with helicopter landing pad. The Seehorn towers majestically over the deep Gondos Gorge at 2439 metres above sea level. The view is overwhelming. Zwischbergental, Laggintal, Gondoschlucht, Alpjen, Simplon Dof and many other hamlets can be discovered.
Don't forget your binoculars! Because on the Seehorn you have wonderful views of the Alps, which are worth a closer look.
The hike is at your own risk. Insurance is the responsibility of the hiker.
Equipment adapted to the weather is indispensable. For all hikes it is strongly recommended to wear good, sturdy mountain boots.
