Description

The walk leaves from Bort on a relatively flat path towards Bussalp and then descends quite steeply down to Aellfluh and Grindelwald. The route does not require much physical fitness, but the descent is hard on the legs. Walking poles are useful to take the strain off the legs! An ideal walk for families with children.
