The Chrindellicka is a site of special energy in Switzerland. The magnificent viewpoint can be easily reached from the Fafleralp along a path hemmed with evergreen bearberries and larches. Higher up, gnarled stone pines and, at the end of the path, a weathered cross brave the elements. The view sweeps over the snow-clad Petersgrat to the Rothörner in the west and onward to the Bietschhorn. The Lötschenlücke in the east is one of the most beautiful upper valleys in the Alps. Return to Fafleralp along the same route (approx. 1 hour).
