On the way to the Kesch hut you hike over the Scaletta Pass and pass the panoramic trail, which is on the route of the annual "Swiss Alpine Marathon". Today you spend the night in the Kesch hut, newly built in 2001, which is regarded as a flagship mountain hut in the Alpine region in terms of energy supply and concept. It has been awarded with the European Union Eco-label and is the winner of the Swiss Solar Prize.

Stage 3: Kesch hut SAC - Es-cha hut SAC

Author’s recommendation

On your way to the Kesch hut, a short detour to the Ravais-ch lakes is always worthwhile and only takes about 20 minutes. You will be rewarded with a beautiful panorama. The two mountain lakes Lai da Ravais-ch Suot and Lai da Ravais-ch Sur are located in a small valley at the foot of the mighty Piz Murtelet. Depending on the incidence of light, the lakes glow from turquoise to green to black.
