Blatten - Trämel - Naters

  • start: Blatten bei Naters (1334 m)
  • destination: Naters

First take time to explore the old village of Blatten bei Naters and then start the hike. First, the path leads you into the romantic Blindtal valley. Enjoy the tranquillity of the forest and listen to the rippling of the water. The hike then leads to Geimen.

After a short climb, you will reach the water conduit "oberi Bitscheri" above the lake in Bitschji. Following its course for a short time, you enjoy a wide view of the valley floor of the Rhone Valley with Naters, Brig, Termen and Ried-Brig. The trail leads past the still visible rock holes where lead, lime, quartz, crystals or talc were mined during the war years.

After about 1.5 hours you reach the Trämel with the small, picturesque Armenseelenkapelle chapel and the renovated pilgrims' shelter. Why not take a short break here? As you continue your descent, the previously stony path becomes greener again and you reach Naters via Hegdorn and Massegga.
