The 2-day tour leads from Muotathal to Riemenstalden and Lidernenhütte SAC registration essential, Tel. 041 820 29 70, www.lidernenhuette.ch
On the second day the path leads us to the Chaiserstock.
We start at Schachen in Muotathal, which lies in a plain flanked by high, rugged mountains and follow the signs to Riemenstalden and Lidernenhütte SAC. Via Flüelen and Hellweid, a primeval landslide area, we reach Frutt on an asphalt road. From the Flüelen there is also an attractive, only 10 minutes longer alternative on a mountain path through rock bands over the Lower and Upper Wissenwand to Frutt. Here we follow the alpine road to Höchi, the transition to the Riemenstaldner valley. Shortly after Höchi, the path to Lidernenhütte branches off south, first steeply uphill, then restlessly up and down. From a distance we can see our overnight accommodation, the Lidernenhütte SAC. The next morning we follow the signs to the Chaiserstock. Passing the impressive Schmalstöckli we first cross alpine pastures and ascend along several small lakes. The terrain becomes stonier and the rocky southwest face of the Chaiserstock gets closer and closer. The path leads under this high wall past to a steep channel up to the Chaisertor. Now follows the exciting and exposed ridge, secured at exposed points with wire ropes and chains. Above we enjoy the magnificent view in all directions, both into the mountain world and far out into the Mittelland. How many lakes are there?The descent is the same until shortly before the Lidernen Plänggeli; instead of heading northwest to the Lidernen we now choose the steep path through the Lidernen Plänggeli down to the Seenalp. Now a winding path leads us to Liplisbüel and then through the shady, wooded slopes of the Hürital down to Muotathal. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator
