Magnificent circular hike up to the glacier snout of the "Langgletscher".
If it is protected, then it must be valuable. How valuable must a region be if parts of it are protected three times over? This entire region lies within the UNESCO Jungfrau - Aletsch World Heritage Site. The alluvial and moraine landscape in the uppermost part is of national importance and a section of the walk passes through a Federal no-hunting area. Enjoy this easy circular walk in the uppermost Lötschental, an area of breathtaking wilderness.
The 1:25,000 scale hiking map is your perfect companion for an unforgettable day's hiking in the Lötschental. Available from the Lötschental Tourist Information Office in Wiler or online at www.loetschental.ch/webshop
