vicino Leukerbad, Canton du Valais (Switzerland)
This stage is by far the shortest (4 hours) and easiest, ending in Lammerenhütte (2.501 m), through Gemmi pass (2.322 m). The historic pass walk from Leukerbad into the Bernese Oberland via the Gemmi pass can, without exaggeration, be described as the classic among classics. The hike to Gemmi is steep, sustained and long (800 m ascent), however the trail is well constructed and never truly dangerous. Lämmerenhütte (http://www.laemmerenhuette.ch/), a family operated hut, is easily reached, though a short section equipped with cables and ropes requires a little more attention. On the way, the view of Laemmeren Glacier is always present.
This stage can be extended with a tour around Daubensee, or approaching Wildstrubel (Iincluded in this wikiloc track), adding two hours walk in a truly Alpine environment.
