Take the cable car up to the Rinderberg for this high-mountain hike, characterised by wide-open alpine pastures and steep meadows of wild hay. At the end of the Gandlouenengrat you cross over the Parwengechessel and Undere Zwitseregg down to the Rüwlise Pass. The trail then gains in altitude as it takes you up to the Heuberg. Caution: here the path is narrow and falls away sharply as it winds its way high above the Turbachtal valley towards the Trüttlisberg Pass. From there on the way takes you to the amazing Gipskrater landscape «Gryden» (attention: the rocks are slippery if they are wet!) Vith the view on the Lenker alps to the mountain station Leiterli (Betelberg). For the return journey take the cable car to Lenk and then the train to Zweisimmen.

Please take note of the operating dates for lifts and cable cars.
