    Même souci rencontré que dans les Dolomites quand la via alpina suit des routes panoramiques surchargées de motards et de voitures de sport. Sans compter les prix prohibitifs d'un repas au col de Klausen. Mais la récompense du jour, ça a été par hasard de quitter la via alpina vers la gauche, quelques kilomètres après Klausen Pass pour descendre par un vertigineux chemin qui avait servi à la transhumance la veille vers le petit hameau de Asch où il est tout à fait possible de bivouaquer près de la rivière, glacée!

    Same concern as in the Dolomites when via alpina follows scenic roads overloaded with bikers and sports cars. Not to mention the prohibitive prices of a meal at Klausen Pass. But the reward of the day, it was by chance to leave the via alpina to the left, a few kilometers after Klausen Pass to descend by a vertiginous road that had been used for transhumance the day before to the small hamlet of Asch where it is all to makes it possible to bivouac near the river, icy!

    ravitaillement possible en fromage à Nussbuel (pas très bon marché).

    Coins de bivouac à Argseeli le long de la rivière dans un petit bosquet. Zones de barbecues présentes. Urnerboden est à 30 minutes à pied.

    Monaco - Trieste
    Possible to bypass Braumwald at Nussbien (by the road), Via Alpina goes up left, there is a trail going down to Linthal on the right (Historisher weg)
    Great pizza served at Italian restaurant in linthal if going down bypassing Braumwald

    Urnerboden - Linthal (bypassing Braumwald) 2h40 flat + steep way down

    "Backpacker Hotel Adrenaline" is probably the cheapest place to stay in Braunwald, since "Zimmer" for rent are rare in CH. I paid SFR 52 in July 2011 for a comfortable room.

Merci aux gens de ce tout petit canton de Glarus
