Oeschinenalp to Blüemlisalp glacier via Heuberg and Oberbärgli

Hiking along a panoramic path above the lake at Oeschinensee and then over-doing it on a much steeper, rockier path on the way to the Blümlisalphütte.

Oeschinensee, Switzerland

One of the more spectacular mountain lakes in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland is at Oeschinensee, in a hanging valley easily reached by cable car from the town of Kandersteg. If you’re feeling lazy, then the walk to the lakeside restaurant is a fairly easy one. If you’re more adventurous, then there are a network of paths leading… (Read More)

It was a long walk along the sledge run,… (Read More)
