Mountain path Gspon–Kreuzboden


PostBus takes you to the stars. 13 magnificent PostBus hiking suggestions.

The Gspon high-altitude trail is a classic among the hiking tours. Situated directly opposite the Mischabel mountain range, it offers a magnificent view of the world-famous 4000 m peaks. We either stay on the trail and hike to Kreuzboden, or descend directly to Saas-Grund or Saas-Balen via Heimischgartu.
