Engeloch - Sirwoltensee - Simplonpass

  • start: Engeloch, post bus stop
  • destination: Simplonpass, post bus stop

The trail leads from Engeloch via the Chlusmatta alpine sign and the following slope on the left bank of the Ritzibach up to the Wysse Bode (2113m). At the end of the bottom, the trail leads through a steep slope with rocky outcrops. These are overcome east (left) of the waterfall over the ramp. Soon after, turn right, cross the stream and bypass the rock that hides the beautiful Sirwoltensee behind it.


After a break at the clear mountain lake you continue on a good and marked path to the Sirwoltensattel. This is the highest point of the hike. Passing the former military accommodation, the trail now descends. Turning to the right, we continue our hike on the well maintained former military road. At the top of the pass there is a mighty stone man commemorating the border troops of the Second World War.


The slightly sloping path leads over the wide Bistina drifts. The short last ascent leads us to the post bus stop.
