Trekking - Oldenhorn (Becca D’Audon) summit

Reusch - Oldenegg - Oldenhorn

Eternal snow in full view

A forest of fir trees and picturesque waterfalls form the backdrop of this mountain trail which begins at the bottom station of Reusch in direction of Oldenalp. After leaving behind the wild, mineral-rich valley of Audon, you get to the gorge of the same name, with the Tsanfleuron glacier right next to it. After the last and quite steep ascent of this challenging hiking tour of more than 5 hours, a view of eternal snow fields and peaks rewards the eye – irresistible in their beauty. From the Becca d’Audon summit (3'122 m), a spectacular panorama of 24 four-thousanders opens up, all part of the impressive Alpine chain.
