Start your winter hike in Ferden, the lowermost village in the Lötschental. The path takes you through the old village of Ferden, where you can marvel at buildings dating back to the 14th and 15th centuries. Follow the Kummenstrasse up to the small hamlet of Eistli and savour the peace and tranquillity before returning along the same route to Ferden.
