A short and easy walk from Hotel Weisshorn to Chandolin along the Planets Way trail.
Bid ‘au-revoir’ to Weisshorn and follow the Planets trail to Tignousa. The trail is a fun and interesting work of art produced by the near-by observatory; walk through a scale version of the solar system with each kilometre representing 1 million kilometres in reality. Once you reach Tignousa where you can shorten the walk and take the funicular down to St Luc.
Otherwise, continue on the path to Chandolin. Due to its situation Chandolin receives a lot of sun and is one of the highest villages in Europe that is inhabited all year long.
Weather conditions can change quickly in the mountains - always be prepared and carry appropriate clothing; warm as well as waterproof layers, hat and gloves etc. Please see your information pack for a detailed packing list.
