Begin hiking from Schynige Platte (1967m) and early on you will be rewarded with views of the Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. As you hike northeast you will pass the Oberberg Alpine Refuge and then Louchera, which is at 2020m. Hike across scree over Loucherhorn (2230m) and you will then arrive at Egg Pass where you will find larger boulders strewn about. From here you will head on to Sägistal, tucked in a valler surrounded by tall mountains. Eventually you will come to the Berghaus Männdlenen Hut on Männdlenen. Head to the ridge of Winteregg.then make a left and summit Faulhorn where you will find some of the best views of the hike. On a clear day you can see well info France and Germany. Just below you is the oldest and highest mountain hotel in the Alps: Berghotel Faulhorn, built in 1830. Hike down to Gassenboden and Bachalpsee. Take in the blue waters of the lake and the views of Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn and Finsteraarhorn. 1-2 hours after you leave the Berghotel Faulhorn you will be at the gondola.
