The ride up to Täschalp and deep into the valley begins with an ascent of the slopes above Täsch, mostly following small mountain roads. The climb is technically straightforward and boosts fitness.

The Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn shuttle takes you to Täsch. Alternatively, you can ride the trail (route 20) to Täsch. From Täsch train station, the route heads through the village and soon starts to climb up the paved road. The majority of the road up to Täschalp winds through the forest. On hot summer days, the sections in the shade are very welcome

On Täschalp, there are some small chalets and a chapel. The view of the Weisshorn on the opposite side of the valley is incredible. It's well worth stopping for a rest.

The trail continues up to the Täschhütte and is very steep in places. On the way up, another highlight of the route is the stunning view down onto the plain around the Mellichbach river.

  • This route can also be ridden on an E-Bike

Author’s recommendation

At Täschalp there is a cheese dairy where cheese and Ziger (soft cheese) can be bought from.
