Experience seven peaks on one tour. The mountain railway makes the climbs a little easier. This leaves you enough time and leisure to enjoy the unique views over the St. Gallen, Grison, Glarus and Central Swiss mountain kingdom.
The tour begins with a tranquil gondola journey up Flumserbeg Tannenbodenalp. Flumserberg, previously a renowned whey-based spa, has been increasingly developing into a popular skiing and hiking resort since its first ski-lift was built in 1945. Floating up to the Maschgenkamm puts you in the right mood for the panoramic tour that awaits.
At the Maschgenkamm mountain station (at 2020m), the wonderful and safe arête hike begins, which will take you over seven peaks. In sequence: 1) Ziger, 2) Leist, 3) Rainissalts, 4) Gulmen, 5) Cuncels, 6) Chli Güslen, 7) Grosser Güslen. It is recommended that you ensure you have enough time to really make the most of the constantly changing landscape.
Views centre on the high alpine backdrop of the Grison, Glarus and Central Swiss Alps along with the local mountain ranges and pastures. A splendid view of the Walensee makes for a splendid conclusion of the tour.
Variante A: Another option is the shorter «four peaks tour» (Ziger – Leist – Rainissalts – Gulmen – Chrüzen – Maschgenkamm) returning to Flumserberg Tannenbodenalp from Maschgenkamm.
Flumserberg Tannenbodenalp can be reached via Unterterzen station with the gondola lift or via Flums with the post-bus.
Snow can still be present in shaded areas in July.
