Faschina - Hochschere Fürkele - Buchboden | Fontanella-Faschina & Sonntag-Buchboden

From the Faschinajoch, you first take the goods road up to the Bartholomäus Alpe. From the alpine pasture a hiking trail now leads up to the Gumpener Grätle and at the foot of the Zafernhorn further over the Furka to the Zafernalpe. Passing the Zafernalpe, the alpine trail now leads up to the Hochschere Fürkele and further on the Hochschere trail in the direction of Buchboden. The Hochschere Weg is a demanding and steep climb (descent) that requires surefootedness and a head for heights. On the south side of the Zitterklapfen, the trail leads past the Obere and Untere Überlutalpe into the valley to Sonntag-Buchboden.
