The best way to reach this beautiful circular trail is to take the gondola lift to Hannig. From there, the hike begins along a woodland path to Mällig (2,700 m a.s.l.), where hikers can enjoy a wonderful view over the Saas Valley and the majority of its 4,000-metre peaks. Then it is a pleasant and mostly flat walk past the Gebidum to the next waypoint at 2,604 m a.s.l., followed by a steep descent to join the Saas-Fee – Grächen high-altitude trail.
The remainder of the hike is a pleasant, gentle descent that leads past Senggboden, shrouded in legend, and Bärenfalle before finishing back in Saas-Fee. This is a demanding tour and therefore not very suitable for children.
The trail got its name for a reason. This is a popular area for ibexes and, with a bit of luck, those who remain quiet are often rewarded with the chance of a close-up photo. One particular highlight of the trail is the alternation between wooded and rocky mountain paths.
Pay attention to the cableway timetable.
Make sure you plan enough time for the hike and be sure to wear sturdy walking shoes and good outdoor clothing.
