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.

Author’s recommendation

Pit stop on the sun terrace of the Sattel hut.
