Bettlerweg & 2-Lake Hike
Together with the Bettlerweg, it is a varied round-trip with incredible views right up to Lake Constance.
The name is misleading: the 2-Lake hike is not an abbreviation of the classic the 5-Lake hike on the Pizol. The Bettlerweg gradually ascends from Pardiel to the Alp Lasa/Obersäss. Along the way, you can discover the entire Alpine plant world from bellflowers and buttercups to rampion and wolfsbane. It is worthwhile bringing a little guide to wild flowers or downloading app on your smartphone.
On you climb, you can enjoy the Grisons’ dominion and the Tamina valley at the foot of the Calanda massif. However, the hike "only" takes you as far as the Pizolhütte as the highest point. On the way back - on the actual 2-Lake hike – you can stop and rest for a while by the Wangsersee and Viltersersee.
Route: Pardiel – Alp Lasa / Obersäss – Pizolhütte – Wangsersee – Viltersersee – Schwarzbüel – Pardiel
Arrival: 8-seater gondola lift Bad Ragaz – Pardiel (15 min.)
Tipp Children love to ride on one of the five Heidi gondolas.
If the whole route is too long, you can do either "only"
The 2-Lake-walk Pardiel-Pizolhütte / Laufböden or "only" the Bettlerweg - and go back down into the valley on the Pizolbahnen (4-seater chairlift Laufböden and 8-seater gondola lift Bad Ragaz = 40 minutes).
