A hike with steel-blue lakes, an impressive waterfall and idyllic Alps.

The trail ascends steeply in a southerly direction over the Rinderplangg. From the very first huts, the path leads towards to the Waldisee Lake which blends beautifully into the landscape of the Bisi Valley. The path leads you over the Muota to the Gross Gade. After a short stretch on the gravel path towards Gwalpeten, the path branches off left to Spitzbächab (1384 m). The view  is astounding. You follow the clearly visible path through the Plangg towards Milchbüelen. Upon meeting up with the Glattalp trail, you descend the few metres to the street and follow this to Milchbüelen. Rapid progress is now made towards the Alp Milchbüelen. At Feldmoos, there’s just a few metres to go on the paved road before the path leads to the left through the Plangg down to the Schmallauistrasse. On this road, you walk to the Salihöchi before turning towards the end of the valley back to the starting point.
