From Wildhaus or Gamplüt via Chreialp Zwinglipasshütte 1999 m
- 3 h, 940 m
The usual access to Zwinglipasshütte is from Wildhaus via Flüretobel to Teselalp. The latter can also be reached from the Gamplütbahn summit station. The escarpment after Teselalp called «Schnüer» is overcome on a well-maintained mountain hiking trail, which winds its way up to Chreialp and the cabin. To complete the round trip, descend via Chreialpfirst and Mutschensattel back to Teselalp.
From Wildhaus Post go to the large parking lot at the fire station and follow the signposts towards Gamplüt. Shortly after the trail passes under the aerial cableway, branch off right to reach Flüretobel (this point can also be reached from the Gamplüt summit station). Hike up Flüretobel and turn right to Teselalp. Behind the chalets the steep stretch to overcome Schnüer begins. Continue past the chalets at Chreialp. As soon as you see the cabin, you have several possibilities to ascend. If in doubt, choose the one with the white-red-white markings.
From the Gamplüt summit station ascend to Fros cutting short the bends of the alp access road. Descend a few metres to merge with the main route.
