Happy Hikers, As the weather will be quite nice this weekend I would love to have an other hike that I was looking forward to do since a while.
Starting point: Elm Station
Ending point: Flims Dorf (the end time is just an estimate, but it depends how quick people hike).
Difficulty: T3 (http://www.hikr.org/post2984.html)
Hiking time: full version 9h
Height gain: 1700 m
Height loss: 1550 m
We take the following trains:
Zürich HB pl. 6 8:43 direction Linthal
Schwanden GL 9:56 Bus 541 direction Elm Sportbahnen.
Route: Elm Station - Tschingelbahn (few people could take the gondola, but it´s small and can´t take a bigger group it´s 400 m height gain, but it´s also worth to go through the Tschingelschlucht). - Segnaspass (where you see Martinsloch - since 2008 on the UNESCO list http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Martinsloch) Who is tired can now go left direction Cassonsgrat and the the gondola down to Flims (last one at about 5:00 pm). We follow the signs direction Segnashütte (better view of Martinsloch) and direct to Narausbahn (last gondola at 5:00 pm as well). I intend to go down to Flims from there. The faster once, who reach Naraus before 5:00 pm can take the gondola down.
Bring with you:
- smile, proper shoes, change of cloth of rain jacket, sun screen, enough water, walking poles.
I´m now also involved in a charity project and this will be also the way for me to support it. We are building childcare facilities in South Africa and trying to collect funds for the construction side. I will collect money (the amount is up to you) in the train for this project. Here is the official website. https://www.jam-schweiz.org/wie-mithelfen/einsaetze-in-suedafrika/kindertagesstaette-neo.html (unfortunately only in German). If you would like to hear more I would love to talk about JAM or our project during the hike.
