The valley between the Turtmann Glacier in the south and the Rhone in the north is as rewarding for hikers as it is for lovers of blood-curdling legends, cultural history and natural diversity. It is the westernmost German-speaking southern Valaisian valley and, from its start at 3,000m next to the glacier down to the valley floor at 678m, reflects the world of the Upper Valais with all of its characteristics.
Start of the circular hike at the Oberems mountain station (1,336m). Above the village you follow the mountain trail and after a stiff climb reach the Alp Griebjini Unnerstafil (1,803m) and Griebjini Oberstafel (2,205m). Continue above the edge of the forest to Zer Pletschu (2,186m). Slow climb through rocky areas and on the forest road towards Rotigu Unnerstafil (1,791m). A bit further down you'll cross the Turtmann Valley main road and follow the valley trail towards Oberems (1,336m).
