Winter hiking tour Törbel–Hostettu–Obere Hellela–Bürchen

Winter panorama Moosalp (VS)

The hike goes from Törbel, via Hostettu and Obere Hellela to Bürchen.

The Moosalp panorama trail is a winter hiking path with spectacular views. The steepest section of the route is right at the start. From the mountain village of Törbel, the signposted winter hiking trail leads to Bina. Then it continues to the old hamlet of Hostettu. The view of the chain of four-thousand-metre peaks is simply magnificent. With an initial slight climb, the route now leads through conifer forests for almost an hour. The gradient changes in the Obere Hellela area to a gentle downhill course. The hike across the plateau, which is quiet in winter, is a real pleasure. At the end of the plateau, the panorama is even more expansive: to the west, the view of the Rhone valley and the western Bernese alps opens up. The trail descends gently towards Zenhäusern in a wide arc and soon reaches the winter sports centre of Ronalp.
