Start at Blatten and hike via Eisten to Kühmatt, a renowned pilgrimage site, home to the impressive baroque "Mariä Heimsuchung" Chapel (Visitation of Our Lady). The trail continues over wide pastures to the Fafleralp. The signposted mountain track leads from the Fafleralp past the Guggistafel Alpine huts to the "Guggisee" Lake. At 2,108 metres, a bridge crosses the Anenbach stream fed by the "Jägigletscher" Glacier and the route then becomes steeper. The Peter Tscherrig Anen Hut provides a splendid view over the entire Lötschental valley and its impressive surrounding glaciers. The ascent to the Lötschenlücke begins beyond the Peter Tscherrig Anen Hut. Cross the middle of the glacier "Langgletscher" at the end of the mountain path and climb underneath the steep cliff walls of the Schinhorn that fall down to the glacier and up to the Lötschenlücke, which can be seen from afar. The SAC Holladia Hut, which you will reach shortly, clings like an eagle’s nest to the rocks. The panoramic vista from this high SAC hut is simply indescribable.
