Alpenpässeweg: Rosswald - Simplonpass

  • start: Rosswald
  • destination: Simplonpass

A varied stage, throughout with panoramic character:

The gondola lift takes you to Rosswald. At the top station, the path climbs up towards Suone. You hike along the Suone to the Stafel Alp. The St. Anna chapel is well worth a visit here.

The hiking trail is well fortified, but be careful when you're in a state of severe dizziness. Over a stair-like section you climb up to Bortelalp. Here a comfortable rest is announced. Enjoy the view and the rush of the white water of the Bortelsee. On the way to the Simplon Pass, a detour to Wase, a charming little hamlet with chapel and intact 250-year-old village is worthwhile. Through the larch forest you ascend another 300 metres and reach the Simplon Pass in the last descending part. Here you have connection to the post bus line back to Brig. The way is also in the opposite direction an impressive experience (and somewhat easier).
