Hike, Belalp-Aletsch Glacier-Riederalp

From the top station of the Riederalp cable car 1,925 m asl we hike through the village over panoramic alpine pastures to Riederfurka 2,065 m asl. The magical view of the Aletsch Glacier delights us here for the first time. The descent to the suspension bridge over the Massa leads us through light larch forest. The suspension bridge 1.614 m above the foaming water of the Massa brings us to the other side of the valley, to the ascent past the Alps Ober Aletsch 1.756 m and Hirmi 1.978 m to the panorama view point, Aletschbord 2.130 m. The small chapel and the Hotel Belalp, which used to stand on the edge of the glacier, let us take a break.

The following part leads us almost level at the original little houses of Lüsga 2.124 m asl over the alpine road to Belalp 2.094 m asl, where we will take the cable car to get to Blatten.
