The tour starts at the top station of the world's first double-decker cable car on the Alp Trider Sattel. The high-level trail towards Ravaischer Salaas and towards Bergli passes dolines ("gypsum holes"). One continues walking over the Zeblasjoch, with a little luck one can see ibex or ptarmigan. The view into the extensive Fimba valley and the Fluchthorn is worthwhile. From Fuorcla Val Gronda at 2752 m above sea level, the path leads steadily down to the Heidelberger Hut.
