Description

We start our hiking trip with a train ride to the Oberalp Pass. At the Leuchturm the path leads us first along the Pass-Strasse slightly downhill. After about 600 meters we cross the road, after which the path widens. We are now on the former railway line of the Matterhorn Gotthard Bahn, which used to run openly around the flank of the Piz Calmot. Today, however, the railway disappears mostly in a tunnel, a little later in a semi-open gallery. When it suddenly buzzes and rumblings: don't be afraid! There is a train on the way.

Halfway on the right we reach a picnic place with a view of the valley. Where the train leaves the tunnel again, we cross a viaduct over a rushing mountain stream. In the zigzag we hike on a meadow path until just before Chamut. As soon as we hit asphalt, we head left up to the train station.

Geheimtipp

In July, the Turkish League blooms along the wayside

Sicherheitshinweis

The picnic area on the way is completely exposed to the sun! Caution should be exercised when crossing the pass route. The path is not suitable for prams throughout.

Directions

From the Oberalp Pass we follow the red and white marked hiking trail in the direction of Rheinquelle/Tomasee. After about 600 meters we cross the pass route to the left and follow the wide, signposted path to Tschamut.
