Leaving the mountain station of Bettmeralp cable car, you head up to Lake Bettmersee. Now follow the path along the western shore of the lake and then on uphill to Lake Blausee. From there, the route takes you up to Biel and Hohbalm, where you cross over to the other side of the ridge. On the following section of the trail to the “Roti Chumma”, views of the Great Aletsch Glacier accompany you all the way. You may also see Valais Blacknose sheep, which spend the summer grazing on the sparse alpine meadows. Once you arrive at the “Roti Chumma”, the monumental glacier is right before you. However you keep on towards Märjela and Lake Märjelensee. Passing the Gletscherstube, the route takes you back in the direction of the sunny plateau. Go through the illuminated Tälligrat-Tunnel (Upper Tälli) and on up to Fiescheralp. From here you can either let the cable car whisk you down to Fiesch, or continue on the Herrenweg trail to Bettmeralp, the starting point of the tour.
