Route description

Discover the eastern side valley of Leukerbad, where the stream Dala has its source. The first section of the tour leads through the forest. After having passed the ditch you cross the mountain pastures bevore arriving at Majingalp and Flüelap. 
At the first paved road, turn through Haus Lärchenwald and head towards the Weidstübli restaurant. Soon the terrain changes to gravel for a good 500 metres, and is followed by a climb through bright woodland that leads on to the Folljeret mountain pastures, and finally the Majingalp pastures. If you wish, you can make a stop at the mountain restaurant or climb another 2km to Flüealp, where the cheese and bread platters are an absolute must. The signposted descent is via the same route back to Leukerbad.
Continue a few minutes from Flüealp to Flüekapelle. From there, you can descend to Leukerbad on the other side of the valley on a single trail (see map).
