Very nice hike with different landscape

This is a long journey through some rugged terrain. Do not take the “short cut” over the pass unless you want a more difficult climb. It’s like mars when you get up to the desert but the Cabin de Prafleuri is great. Snowed and hailed for us most the day we hiked up. Worth a stop at Cabin du Mont Fort for coffee and visit with all the cows!

One of favorite days of Haute Route Hiking. Stunning day

Did this a little differently than described by the app. I started in Les Avants, and hiked up to Col de Jaman. Also scrambled up the peak to the north east called Les Coursis. It is an amazing view of the lake in the mountains, but be careful if you choose to go to Led Coursis, because the last bit is a very steep scramble.

Hallo zusammen, ich habe mich den Pro AllTrails gekauft aber der einzige Unterschied ist, das ich die Karte herunterladen kann. Das bring mir aber nichts wenn ich die ausgewählte Strecke ins Navi nicht eingeben kann...kannmir jemand bitte helfe wie ich mich hier einfach eine ausgewählte Strecke ins Navi eingeben und los fahren kann...?

This one has a little bit of everything! The paved road with gorgeous mountain views up at Mürren gradually transitions to gravel road with the continuity of gorgeous mountain views to Grüschalp, where the path becomes much grassier and less apparent and ultimately descends into the trees by way of switchbacks and farmland until Lauterbrunnen. Absolutely breathtaking views.

This is a must do hike!!! We started from murren. Rotstockhutte was at the 4.0 mark on this trip. We continued on after lunch there to the summit at schilthorn. Then we rode the gondola down to birg and then murren. We asked our hotel to call up Rhutte before we left to confirm we could get lunch there. The hike up to Rhutte was mostly easy and we stopped a bunch of times to look back at the views as we gained elevation. Lunch at Rhutte was epic! Literally the best imaginable set up possible. I can’t describe it with words... it’s perfect! After a stiff drink and an amazing lunch we headed up to the summit. The trail was well marked, but rather intense climb at times. My wife’s fear of heights caused her to hike fast on a few of the ridges, and there are some well placed cables and even some stairs to prevent any significant scrambling. The summit (if you decide to extend the hike) affords amazing 360 degree views. And the gondola down saves the knees. At the top of schiltorn we got a hot coco to warm up. And then stopped at the birg transfer for the views and a glass of wine. We’ve hiked many places around the world, but today is likely our best 1-day hike ever.

Super hard hike but rewarding as hell. Be prepared for a long and challenging day, no matter if you start from Griesalp or Kandersteg.

Really nice trail! We did it the other way around and we think that’s a better experience because the beauty builds up nicer. Path is rocky which looks much better than a clean path. Very little shade so apply your sunscream often. The peak in the middle is het most beautifull and gives you amazing views on both sides!! Can tell you more but that will spoil the experience.

randonnée magnifique

Gorgeous beyond belief. Mileage is probably not correct. Restaurant at top that also has rooms. The last two miles gets your attention. The lake on way down also has rooms. Train from lake as an option for end of day. Must for a beer. Lots of steep up and down. Steps with rope. Down not as steep. Stay in Griesalp. Never regret.

Easy partial day hike. Can start at apengli. Take train. Leave time for lunch at top. Multiple ways to Wengen. Most scenic is to cross tracks at top and stay left. Also longer by about 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
