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.
Suggestion: If you don't want to bike the last steep section from Täschalp to the Täschalp hut, you can head from Täschalp through the valley (towards Pfulwe). The trail runs parallel to the Mellichbach river, climbing gently into the valley for a little over 3 km. Being in the valley surrounded by the incredible mountains makes you feel very small! If the trail becomes too steep to ride up, then simply turn around.
Tip: “Be searchable”. Equip yourself with an additional RECCO rescue reflector*. Whether summer or winter. Available in our Online-Shop or our information desk. *The additional reflector does not replace an avalanche beacon.
