Tour description

From Mittlerwengi one climbs up to Alp Hinterwengi (1321 m), from there with very little difference in altitude into the Wengital toward Chüemettler. The narrow mountain trail, which now climbs rapidly, takes one in approx. half an hour to Chüemettler-Furggen (1603 m). In order to reach the peak of Chüemettler one must hike along the Chüemettler ridge. Now we come to the steep, but well-made mountain path along the west flank. From the Chüemettler peak, approx. 100 meters to the south, a yellow sign shows the start of the trail down to Alp Obere Bogmen. Although this path is steep, there are metal railings or strong ropes for the safety of the hiker along the most difficult sections. And once you have the first hundred meters of this descent behind you, you can be proud to have accomplished the most difficult phase of this hike. Soon you will reach the next stopping point, the Alp Obere Bogmen (1383 m). From there it is only 20 minutes down through the «Striggital» to your starting point.

  • Ende Mai liegt noch viel Schnee! Im mittleren Teil der Wanderung war der Weg streckenweise voll bedeckt. Besonders über den Grat vor dem Chüemettler war das nicht ganz ungefährlich... es ist ziemlich steil. Der Abstieg ist ebenso abenteuerlich. Es hat zwar Hilfen, jedoch muss man mit der einen oder anderen Kletterei rechnen. Wegen der Schneeschmelze war es zum Teil matschig und rutschig... Ansonsten sehr empfehlenswerte, aufregende Wanderung. Wunderschönes Panorama auf den unteren Zürichsee. Besser ab Ende Juni gehen und nur bei wirklich trockenen Verhältnissen.
