I had heard so much about this trail, and was a bit disappointed. It’s mostly flat and well-maintainer gravel, so great for bikes or kids, yet it would be a long walk for a kid. Takes about 2 hours (+\- depending how fast you walk)...More

We took the Sunnbuel cable car up and then walked to the Gemmi Pass (taking the gondola down to Leukerbad). The hike is strenuous, but the payoff is well worth the effort.

We went up the Sunnbuel cable car from Kandersteg, and walked across the top to the Gemmi pass itself, taking the short cable car ride up to the end. You get a spectacular view of the Valais Alps - the Matterhorn and others - which...More
