Turn-by-turn directions

We start our tour at the Furka Pass and hike south along the marked path. We cross the many small arms of the Mussbach stream and soon find ourselves at a crossroads where we keep left. A path now leads steeply up to the Tällilücke and further left, then at the highest point of the tour right to the Tälligrat.

At the crossroads in Gale we turn right, after we cross the Lengesbach and circle the Tällilücke now on the northeast side. At the following fork we turn right and reach the crossroads which we already know from the ascent. Then we take the familiar path back to the Furka pass.
