On the 15th stage of the Via Alpina from Adelboden to Lenk, mountain climbers hike from the village centre along the Allebach and later the Gilsbach through dense forests to Geils. Finally, they follow the hiking trail, which leads through alpine moorland to the Hahnenmoospass. From here you can enjoy the view of the Wildstrubel massif and the glacier La Plaine Morte. If you are lucky and the weather is fine, hikers can observe the many passionate pilots who fly their model gliders over the Hahnenmoos. Before descending into the Simmental, the mountain restaurant invites you to take a well-earned rest. Well-fortified, the Via Alpina leads from the top of the pass over gravel roads, pastures and past countless chalets down to Lenk village centre.
