Take the Weisshorn gondola all the way to the Weisshorn peak. On 2,653m a fantastic view awaits. Also during the descent towards the Sattel hut the panoramic view remains as stunning as from the top. It is recommended to enjoy a nice break on the sun terrace of the Sattel hut before continuing your hike on a small trail to the Prätschsee lake. From there the last section leads through the Arlenwald forest all the way back to the Weisshorn gondola middle station.
