Circular hike into the terrain of the easternmost Hasliberg settlement (hamlet of «Wysseflüo»).

Crosses partly very steep meadowland and thus an area that very much lives up to the description of mountain farming. Offers impressive views of the nearby Engelhörner, the knife-edge of the Eiger and areas of the landscape that are otherwise hardly visible from the Hasliberg (Aare gorge, The valley basin of Innertkirchen with the division into the valleys to the Grimsel, the Sustenpass and the deeply cut Urbachtal). 

From the end of the village of Reuti we follow the access road to Wysseflüo on a flat stretch. After a more rigorous climb to Eigen, we reach particularly steep hay country and a beautiful forest section. The more frequent encounters with butterflies are striking. The walk ends via the Schletterstrasse back to the village.
