You start the Kesch Trek in Davos. The hiking stages can be adapted as you wish, whether you start in Davos Frauenkirch, Davos Glaris, take the Rinerhorn cable car or travel directly by bus to the door of the Walserhuus. There is probably something for everyone. At the Walserhuus Sertig you have reached your first stage destination and here you spend the night in a multi-bed room.

 

Whole tour: Kesch-Trek

Stage 2: Walserhuus Sertig - Kesch hut SAC

Author’s recommendation

Do you fancy a ride on the Rinerhorn cable car. The gondola takes you to the Jatzmeder mountain station. From here, a beautiful hiking trail leads along the right side of the valley to the far end of Sertig. If you like, you can make a detour to the Rinerhorn at the beginning of the hike.
