Moosalp Panoramaweg

If you don't know Moosalp yet, the panorama trail is the perfect way to catch up. The "Stand" is one of the region's beacons: the highest point on the plateau offers a magnificent panoramic view of the entire Upper Valais and twelve four-thousand-metre peaks.
Start and finish of this hike is the Moosalp high above the Rhone valley. With views of the Bietschhorn to the north and the Weisshorn and Mischabel groups with Balfrin and Nadelhorn to the south, the alp is a popular destination. Passing the alpine barns, the trail leads out into the beautiful nature of the high plateau.

The first stop is at Bürchneralp where the restaurant and terrace with panoramic views invite you to enjoy a raclette. You then continue gently uphill and downhill again to Ledi. Here, an ascent to Breitmatte follows, a large clearing in the huge forest area of the Moosalp region. When you reach the large stone house of Breitmatte, turn off in the direction of Breitmattusee. This is a very small lake, but it is beautifully situated and makes a great photo spot. The next lake, the Bonigersee, is a real lake only in summer. After that, the term "moor" is more appropriate.

Finally, there’s the highlight of the tour and of the whole region: the "Stand", which can be reached on various narrow paths. This vantage point is one of the most visited places on Moosalp. It offers a wonderful panoramic view of the surrounding Bernese and Valais four-thousand-metre peaks.
