Safety information

The route leads past steep rock columns with occasional glimpses down the valley (unsuitable for those who experience vertigo). In May, the mountain ridges may still be covered with avalanche snow: risk of avalanches.

Hiking is at your own risk: Tourism Adelboden-Lenk-Kandersteg accepts no liability whatsoever when using local routes.
