Description

A classic pass trail following the contours of the landscape. A must for all visitors to the Jungfrau Region. The good, sometimes steep trail with high-alpine charm leads along the terrace at the foot of the Männlichen chain, up through woods and alp pastures via Allmend to Wengernalp. The views of the mighty rock walls of the Lauterbrunnen Valley and down into the untouched Trümmelbach Valley are spectacular. The trail continues around the slopes of the Lauberhorn (where in January ski aces compete in the legendary Lauberhorn Downhill) and on to Kleine Scheidegg. The world's most famous silhouettes: On this hike you have the fantastic Bernese Oberland mountain world at your feet, with the world-famous silhouettes of the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau taking the starring role. A little patience is required here however as the incredible panorama of the three giants first opens up between Wengernalp and Kleine Scheidegg. On the first part of the hike, the glittering summit of the Silberhorn catches your eye as a forerunner of the big three.
