From Isenfluh an almost nostalgic aerial cableway will take you in 4 minutes up to Sulwald (1533m).
From there you'll hike through a magnificent landscape dominated by forest and rocks to Alp Chüebodmi (1692m). An ideal place for a break as it is called a place of power. Afterwards you'll continue your trip along the Sulsbach to Alp Suls and then Sulsseeli (1920m). Finally, the hike leads to the SAC Lobhorn hut (1955m).
You'll pass a few places of power like Chüebodmi, Fritzenbrüggli or Sulsseeli.
For variation there are two versions:
Version A: Instead of taking the cableway you can also hike the way from Isenfluh to Sulwald. And it's worth the pain because you will pass the impressive waterfall of the Sulsbach.

Additional length is 2.2 km and there is an extra altitude difference of 427 which means it will take you about an hour longer.
