From Ernen, this hike crosses through the forest and valley of Rappental to reach Chäserstatt, offering splendid views of the Rhône and Conches valleys.
This hike starts in the small village of Ernen. The path initially passes through the forest, gradually leading you to Niederärner Chäller on a beautiful shaded track, before crossing through the wild valley of Rappental along the Milibach stream. The route then runs along the edge of the forest up until Lärch, which marks the highest point of the hike. Continue your outing along a small path bordered by magnificent alpine flowers until you reach the breathtaking vantage point of Chäserstatt and its cozy mountain hotel. After a relatively steep descent, you will reach the pretty village of Mühlebach and the famous Goms suspension bridge, before arriving at Fürgangen train station.
Stop for refreshments at the Chäserstatt Berghotel, which brews its own craft beer on site.
