The path over the Rufibodma to Plattjen offers a great alternative to the conventional trails in the Plattjen area. This tour is not traversed as often as others in the region and therefore offers a good chance of spotting some of the local wildlife in their natural habitat.
The mountain hiking trail starts in Saas-Almagell at the beginning of the woodland path to Saas-Fee. The path ascends steeply through the Brunnenwald forest and the Rufibodma then, after a short zigzag section, opens out onto a path that lies directly beneath Berghaus Plattjen and above the Furggje area. From this beautiful viewpoint, it is only a short walk up to the Berghaus. Here, hikers can take a rest before continuing along the path to the mountain station of the Plattjen cableway, where they can either continue along one of the various onwards trails or take the cableway down to Saas-Fee.
Pay attention to the cableway timetable.
Pay attention to the Postauto bus timetable.
Make sure you plan enough time for the hike and be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes and good outdoor clothing.
Respect the wildlife and their natural habitat.
