The ridge is located about 12 km east of Thun. The Sigriswilergrat chain stretches from Lake Thun at Merligen over some 7 kilometres to the northeast to the edge of the Zulgtals. Major peaks are found from the southwest to the northeast including Fluh (1,658 m above sea level), Merra (1,954 m above sea level), Sigriswiler Rothorn (2,051 m above sea level, which is also the highest mountain in the chain), Mittaghorn (2,014 m above sea level), Schaflägerzähne (1,952 m above sea level) and Burst (1,969 m above sea level).
