From Griesalp bus station via Bundalp, Bundläger and Oberloch to the Gamchi glacier. Continue the ascent to the glacier to the eastern moraine area. Caution: If you arrive from the direction of Bundalp / Blüemlisalp, be careful not to miss the turning. Always follow the white-red-white markings as far as the glacier bridges. The descent from the glacier is over a 20 m ladder. If you are with children and dogs make the ascent via Gamchialp.Although you are crossing the Gamchi glacier, you will hardly notice any glacial ice: the entire glacier is completely covered in stones, rocks and moraine. A rope and pick are not needed. Since the glacier is still moving, you will always notice debris en route.Duration:Griesalp - Gspaltenhorn mountain hut via Bundalp: 4 hoursGriesalp - Gspaltenhorn mountain hut via Gamchi: 3 1/2 hours.Blüemlisalp mountain hut - Gspaltenhorn mountain hut 4 hoursKandersteg - Gspaltenhorn mountain hut: 7 - 8 hoursRoute / Difficulty level:T3, requires a safe step (»Info Swiss SAC Hiking Scale)Arrival/return:By train to Reichbach, continue by Postbus to Kiental to GriesalpAlternative route:Griesalp, Bundalp, Bundläger, Gamchi
