Famous for its ski tours, the mountain is also well worth hiking on in summer. After reaching Furka Pass altitude, the beautiful Alpine trail leads past idyllic mountain lakes and all the way up to the Stotzigen Firsten. The descent across a wide grassy ridge down into the Witenwasseren valley is leisurely. At the very end, you will follow the tracks of the Furka Mountain Steam Railway to Realp.
