Belalp to Birgisch

Belalp – Alpe Nessel – Birgisch

From Brig you take the PostBus to Blatten and then the cable car to the Belalp (2094 m a.s.l.). From the Blatten-Belalp cable car mountain station you reach the slightly lower Alpe Bäll (2013 m a.s.l.). On the beautiful panoramic trail, along the “Nessjeri”, with a view on the Aletsch Glacier, you hike to the Nesselalp (2010 m a.s.l.). After that you follow the trail down to Birgisch (1091 m a.s.l.). The path to Birgisch is quite steep, but with good shoes and a fit condition, this is easily managed.
