Loop trail hiking tour Griesalp–Christihubel–Griesalp

Panoramic views of Kiental, Gspaltehorn and Blüemlisalp

Griesalp loop trail hike across Christihubel with panoramic views of Kiental, Gspaltehorn and Blüemlisalp. 

The trip by postbus is already a highlight since the section between Kiental and Griesalp is the steepest postbus route with a gradient of 28%.

After an adventurous PostBus ride and arrival at Griesalp, you can stop at one of the five Griesalp hotels and the restaurants Rastpintli, Berghaus as well as the self-service "Rocky Grieshouse".

From the final stop at Griesalp, take the path towards Chüegwindli Christihubel. Follow the route along the red, white, red markings. You will need an alert eye for this, as they are sometimes difficult to recognise.

In any case, take the time to walk to the highest point, the Christihubel, and enjoy the view of the Kiental valley and the Gspaltenhorn and Blüemlisalp peaks.

Kiental is the name of both the valley and the village in it.
