Lötschberg Panoramic Trail
The route continues through glacier-eroded terrain up to Lauchernalp to merge seamlessly with the popular Lötschental Legend Trail. A true classic and a worthy finale to the Lötschberg Panoramic Trail. Along this trail, ten different Lötschental legends will carry you off into the fascinating world of myths and legends. This mythical trail passes the Weritztafel, the Tellistafel, the breathtakingly beautiful Schwarzsee ("Black Lake") and ends at the Fafleralp. Return from the Fafleralp using the postbus or on foot. This route can also be walked in the opposite direction.
