From Partnun you walk over green mats up under the bright limestone walls of the Sulzfluh. Over some rock steps secured with wire ropes you reach the barren, screech Gemstobel. Some exposed areas require sure-footedness. The striking summit cross firmly in view you climb steeply up to the ridge. The detour to the summit of the Sulzfluh (2817 m) is rewarded with a spectacular panorama of the Valais Alps and Lake Constance in good visibility. Over the Karrenfeld, an extensive limestone landscape of slabs and pointed ribs, you walk along the border with Austria in the direction of Tilisunahütte. Continue on the alpine section of the trail - a good orientation is a prerequisite, because Steimännli (Steinmänner) and only a few markings show the way. Before the counter-ascent to point 2446, branch off through a hollow to the east. Back on Swiss soil you soon reach the first caves. The Abgrundhöli is reserved for speleologists, as it plunges into the depths right at the beginning. But the Seehöli and Chilchhöli can be explored a bit on your own responsibility (don't forget your headlamp!). Past the caves, the path leads in a steep zigzag down to the Tritt (2043 m). From here it goes on the mountain hiking trail (white-red) past the Partnunersee back to Partnun.
Variant: If you want even more rock contact, replace the ascent through the Gemschtobel with the via ferrata Sulzfluh.
The trail is classified as T4 (alpine hiking) on the section between the cart fields and the caves - there are few trail markings available, a good orientation is a prerequisite (if marked: white-blue-white, according to walking scale SAC). The other sections of the trail are classified as challenging mountain trails (T3-T3+, marked: red-white).
