Allmagellerhütte - Zwischbergenpass - Zwischbergen, Bord

  • start: Allmagellerhütte SAC
  • destination: Bord, Zwischbergen

The day tour starts at the Allmagellerhütte, where there is an overnight accommodation option. After a 45-minute ascent (about 400 m), you reach the signpost at the Zwischbergen Pass. After a short scramble through large boulders, you reach the highlight of the tour, the Zwischbergenpass. The first steep and somewhat arduous descent over loose scree and rock to the snowfield follows. The further descent variant is ideally chosen based on the current snow conditions and tracks. The official route leads relatively close to the rock on the left down to the glacier moraine and the stream. After crossing the stream, the longer the trail, the greener it becomes. Rocks and scree give way to green meadows and alpine flowers. At "Zibelenflue" the last challenging section awaits, which is overcome safely with handrails. With a view of the Fa reservoir, the tour continues to descend past the shepherd's hut in Galki towards Gmeinalp. In Gmeinalp, numerous ruins bear witness to times gone by. The trail leads rather flat along the streambed into the Cheller and to the Fa reservoir. After a short, wide passage on a private road, the trail turns right and continues downhill through the forest. Along the "Great Water", the path turns left shortly before the destination in the direction of Zwischbergen, Bord.

This hike is very demanding. The last ascent over large stones to Zwischbergenpass and the descent over the loose scree and snow field to Zibelenflüe has an alpine character and must not be underestimated under any circumstances. Due to the natural conditions (snowfield, scree), the trail is not always clearly visible, but there are clearly visible markings in many places. Good preparation and equipment are absolutely essential for this tour.



From Zwischbergen, Borf there is a call bus during the summer months. Reservations are essential up to 2 hours before departure or in the evening by 5.00 pm.
