You start your hike with a walk at the rear end of Lake Lucerne. This trail will take you to the first cable car, the "Vorderen Bärchi".
The ascend to the upper Bärchi offers a breathtaking panorama over Lake Lucerne and is one of the most beautiful in this hike. After a short hike you float down into the Isenthal.
Hotel (example): Hotel Uri Rotstock
From dreamy Isenthal you walk through a steadyway into the Chlital where family Kempf is waiting for you, to transport you up on the Gietisflue with your cable. From here you have a great view of the Reuss plane. Through a nature sanctuary you walk back to Altdorf.
Moderate hikes with an average duration of approximately 4 - 5. 5 hours walking time. For these hikes you should bring a good physical condition.
As you will win altiude quickliy through the cable cars, you are most of the time on an alpine road. Surefootedness is necessary. For the cable car rides in the small, partly open gondolas you have to be free from giddiness.
