Stage 2, Muotathal–Hinter Klöntal
The Muota Valley is a green, long Schwyz valley framed by mountains. The long hike to Klöntal begins at the powerfully curved wooden bridge in Muotathal. A charming pass hike with beautiful houses and stables along the way, but also pastures and meadows. View of the Bödmeren primeval forest above Muotatal, below which the cave system of Hölloch spreads out. Culturally interesting: the Richisau inn.
