The trail leads at first to the Täsch hut, a popular base for mountaineers planning to scale the Alphubel, Täschhorn and Rimpfischhorn. The path then continues up to the Weingartensee along a former lateral moraine. Scree, rock and cliffs dominate the arid landscape, which has hardly any vegetation. Stand at the far end of the reservoir, and the mirror-like surface appears to merge with the sky.
Dominating the landscape is the mighty Alphubel, more than 4,000 m high, whose shape and name suggests a hill rather than a mountain. In the local dialect, “Hubel” refers to a small, rounded mound or a hilly landscape.
Important! A good head for heights, a sure foot and mountain experience are needed
