Stage 2: Grialetsch hut SAC - Kesch hut SAC

Author’s recommendation

Do you fancy a detour with a fantastic view on your way to the Grialetsch Hut? The Flüela Schwarzhorn (3147 m above sea level) is a three-thousand meter high mountain easy climb (white-red-white marked access), whereby you have to add 3-4 hours in addition to the hiking time. In good weather, the view extends from Grossglockner to Mont Blanc.
