Schallbett - Simplonpass - Schallbett

  • start: Bus stop, Schallbett
  • destination: Bus stop, Schallbett

You start your hike in the Schallbett, where the post bus stop is located. Follow the Alpine Passes Trail in the direction of the Simplonpass. The path leads you with varied impressions over the gallery roofs of the Simplonpass road.

Let your gaze wander from Simplonpass to the right. The open panorama stretches from the Tochuhorn, Staldhorn, Glishorn over the Bietschhorn. At the end of the Tafernal valley and the Saltina gorge, the Alpine town of Brig is visible. You can see the sunny mountain ridge Rosswald well in the foreground, while behind it you can admire Riederalp and Bettmeralp on the Aletsch Glacier.

Once you reach the Simplon Pass, follow the serpentines of the Stockalperweg down into the Taferna valley. Before you reach the Taferna stream, turn right and climb towards «Tschiife». Sheep and horses spend the warm summer months here. You cross the «Chalti Wasser» stream, which carries the meltwater from the Chaltwass glacier below Monte Leone into the valley. Follow the path back to the starting point - the Schallbett post bus stop.
