Start your walk at Lauchernalp, from where it takes around 2hrs to hike to the Hockuchriz via Stafel. Relish the magnificent view at 2,593m above sea level. Take a breather on the descent to the Kummenalp and pop in to the Guesthouse Kummenalp for some sustenance. Newly fortified at the Kummenalp, enjoy another part of the Lötschental Panoramic Trail up to the Lauchernalp.
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
