Track description

The climb to the Niwen, also known as Einigs Alichji, begins in Ferden and initially heads towards Faldumalp. The path to Niwen is marked from the Faldumalp and passes through impressively huge rock causeways and avalanche constructions built by the BLS. The continuing climb via Stritungrat and Niwengrat is simple – you will need your hands for a small ledge. Then you are at the peak of the Niwen, at a height of 2769 m above sea level. From the Niwen you have a view of the entire Lötschental and the central Rhone Valley. As for the descent to Jeizinen we recommend a mountain guide, as this route is a skiing route.
