From the Lauchernalp, ascend to the Lötschenpass Hut, where Beat Dietrich and his friendly lodge team await you. Your climb up to the hut is rewarded with a splendid view around the Lötschental and the Kandertal valleys from the pass. The view across to the mighty Bietschhorn and beyond the Rhone valley to the Mischabel range is particularly breathtaking. You can recharge your batteries in the Lötschenpass Hut for the descent to the Kummenalp and on towards the Lauchernalp.

Wunderschöne, aber auch anstrenge Tour mit Ausblicken. Schon ab Beginn ist klar, dass die Baumgrenze hier keine Rolle spielt. Trittsicherheit und Kamera sind erforderlich. Gerne wieder - aber bitte zeitig starten.
