Emmetten is the bike eldorado of Nidwalden. The hidden Choltal is little known even by locals and shows Nidwalden from its "wild and unspoilt" side.
Arrived in Emmetten we let transport our bikes with the cable car to Stockhütte. During the short ride we enjoy the view of the deep blue Lake Lucerne.
The Choltal bike tour starts at the Stockhütte mountain station. A gravel path leads over moor and alpine meadows. Arriving at the Egghütte, the most challenging part of the tour awaits us: on the way to Choltal we test our technical driving skills. After the challenging descent, the Choltalbach offers a number of picnic places to linger. On the road (attention traffic) we follow the way back to Emmetten.

Author’s advice
The tour can easily be extended through the Brennwald.
Recommended side trip: the chapel with the "Totentanz" and the fireplace "Schützen 12". The round course "Wood-Trail" at the Hotel Seeblick in Emmetten is particularly popular, where various technical elements can be practiced.
