    Description

    The tour to the Illhorn is one of the Enduro classics in Valais. The ratio of ascent to descent is excellent on this tour.

    In Leukerbad, firstly ascend with the cable car to Rinderhütte. The colourful singletrail starts just behind the mountain station. The easily negotiable path leads high above the Rhone valley to the Bachalp via Oberu, where the downhill adventure first comes to an end. A forest trail leads up to the Niwenalp, where a singletrail then leads up to a pleasant slope. Above the Feselalp you will reach an alpine road, which you should follow to the Heruhubel via Stafelalp. The descent leads to the Upper Meiggu Alp, then winds down the forest, past the Lower Meiggu Alp and finally as an easy descending path to Jeizinen across steep terrain. At the neighbouring village of Engersch, turn left and take the trail to Erschmatt. If you want to go back to Leukerbad, the singletrack trail adventure is now over. You will reach Albinen via Feschel on mountain roads and continue to the valley station of the mountain railway. The last section to Leukerbad is along another wonderful singletrail. The tour is more adventurous when descending from Feschel to Leuk. Afterwards, take the bus for the return trip to Leukerbad. You will reach the large satellite ground station via the signposted hiking trails via Wiler, and from there, continue to Leuk. Take the bus to Leukerbad at the Leuk station.

    Alternatives: From Illsee to Meretschialp and via Asp to Agarn. This descent is longer, but requires a steep sliding passage from Lake Illsee to the transition to 2552 meters above sea level.
