Starting again from Saas Grund we take the cable car to 3,800m have a wander around the lake and take in the views before a descent back to Saas Grund at 1650m. However it is quite a steep descent, some good views glanced between the forest and many beautiful flora and fauna
This is the last walk near Grindelwald (1034m) for a while. After taking the cable cars up to the tourist activity centre at First (2166m), we take a steady 6km walk to Buchalpsee. This is one of the more iconic views in the area. Whilst only about a 100m climb, the route is almost like a motorway with tourists, however the fauna and flora are quite amazing….as are the views. It’s a walk where the Swiss signposts say 1.5hr but it takes us about 2.5hr as you just have to keep stopping for views and to examine the endless variety of rockeries of flowers and spot a marmot. Oh and I added a photo of me to show we were really there.
Shame I said just 10 photos but there we are.
This walk needs the steamer from Glenridding down to Howtown. There is a decent amble back along the lakeside but still has its ups and downs. This autumnal day Mrs D took me up and over the top to Place Fell. But it was a bit late on the top for any decent photos.
Prepare a decent lunch and a couple of flasks for todays walk.
