From the hilltop Lac de Tseuzier leaves an impressive and adventurous path with a stunning view.
Then we start from Crans Les Rousses (1763 m) to the Cabane des Audannes (2508 m). First we walk through the Combe des Andins where the trail is quite steep, but not for long. When we enter the great stone platform is the hut in sight with its lake.
The Cabane des Audannes is a small and comfortable mountain lodge that real mountain life radiates already 100%. (+ 780 m to the hut)
Today we are going on the glacier. At the col des Eaux Froides, not far from the hut, we leave the path and find the easiest passage to the rocky terrain until we set foot on the Wildhorn Glacier.
Here we’ll use crampons. We then follow the glacier to the 3247 m high summit of the Wildhorn. It is a technically simple glacier tour, good for catching up on the crampons and the experience of walking into the rope.
From the top, we have an impressive panoramic view of the northern and eastern Bernese Alps, Valais, Mont Blanc, Chablais and the Vaudois Alps.
We begin the descent as we came up, but bend as rapidly in a northeasterly direction.
We continue to fall and descend to the edge of the lake Tseuzier where we stay in a beautiful “natural” location. (+ 750 m / -1470 m)
An impressive suspension bridge along the lake, we return to our starting point. We descend to the valley and go to the tourist Leukerbad where we take the cable car after a cozy dinner at the Gemmi.
From there, we have about two hours to the Lammerenhütte (2501 m) which is perched on a large outcropping of rock like an eagle’s nest.
Today we highlight some peaks of the Wildstrubel on our record.
The first is the Wildstrubel (3244 m). 85 m drop and a gentle climb later we set foot on the Mittelgipfel or Grossstrubel (3243 m).
We stay back in the Lämmerenhütte (2501 m). (+ 850 / -850 m)
Early in the day we climb to the top of the Daubenhorn (2941 m) from where we have a magnificent panoramic view of the impressive 4000ers of the Valais and the Rhone Valley. Then we go back to the “Lambs Boden” which is not far to the Gemmipass. From there the cable car brings us back.
Pleasant comfortable refuges.
