2 Days Hike Schoellenen (Andermatt - Wassen - Silenen)

Monday 2023/06/05: Andermatt - Wassen - Gurtnellen

First some distance from Andermatt:

  • Andermatt - Stoeckli 3h
  • Andermatt - Goeschenen 5h 35m
  • Andermatt - Lutersee 3h 35m
  • Andermatt - Oberalpsee 4h 25m
  • Andermatt - Oberalppass 4h 45m
  • Andermatt - Gotthardpass 4h / 7h 25m (alternative route)
  • Andermatt - Airolo 6h 25m
  • Andermatt - Realp 3h 20m
  • Andermatt - Tiefenbach 5h 45m

I start in Andermatt, 1438m elevation, strong north wind, apprx. 12C at 11:00, the St Gotthardpass is open, but this time I head back where I came from and descend into the Schoellenen, a narrow rocky valley as the next photos show well - impressive construction of roads and bridges.

Tuesday 2023/06/06: Gurtnellen - Silenen

After a good night sleep, I wait until the sun reached my tent through the trees, late start at 10:20. Descending further to Amsteg, heavy nets securing the highway below from large rocks descending. I continue further to Silenen, where this brief hike ends.
