    Meidpass
    Description

    The tour through the Meidpass is considered to be one of the most impressive singletrack routes in the Valais. The ascent is shaped by phenomenal scenery with the Weisshorn in the background, and the 2,400 metre descent to Sierre is on single tracks.

    The best place to start the tour is in Oberems. A small cable car takes you from Turtmann to the little village at the entrance to the Turtmanntal valley. The first part of the ascent takes you through the Turtmanntal on a pleasantly steep road, before you turn right onto the alpine trail to the Meide Alp. This section is somewhat steeper, and after the alp there is a 400 metre climb where you will need to get off and push. The track is well maintained, however, and walking is not a problem. When you have reached the Meidpass at a height of almost 2800 metres, phase 2 of the tour begins: the descent to Sierre. The single track is initially quite demanding, but then becomes smoother and smoother and leads all the way to Chandolin. Here, a short ascent on the other side is required to reach the world-class section to Sierre. This takes you first of all via the western Gorwetsch Ridge and through steep terrain to the motorway exit at Pfynwald. You then follow the cycle path to Sierre stationw.
