Bortelhütte

  • start: Rosswald, 1'819 m
  • destination: Berisal 1'525 m

This trail leading up to the Bortelhütte mountain hut takes hikers through a wide variety of landscapes. It begins in Rosswald, a car-free village that is accessible by cable car and situated on a sunny terrace at the edge of the Simplon Pass. From there, the route heads uphill to Bortelalp, far from the hustle and bustle of town. The trail runs along larch forests, winds across alpine pastures where sheep graze in flocks, and climbs up to the Bortelhütte, which offers an unobstructed and commanding view over the Gantertal, the Ganterbrücke and the Glishorn.
