Hiking in the Bernese Oberland: Bachalpsee

On this trip we dumped our predecided agenda and chose to do non-touristy stuff. Step one was booking a room and backpacking to the idyllic settings of the Swiss village of Grindelwald. Surrounded by the beautiful peaks of Eiger, Faulhorn, Schwarzhorn, Wellhorn, Wetterhorn, Schreckhorn, Lauteraarhorn, Agassizhorn, Fiescherhorn, Mönch, Lauberhorn and Männlichen, the view is breathtaking.


After a hearty breakfast, we decided to go to Grindelwald First which is the one stop for adventure. We decide to hike to Lake Bachalpsee. The board says 50 minutes and I am lured into the hike. We undertook an 8 km hike through the Swiss Alps, which made me huff and puff. But the reward at the end of the hike- the enchanting sight of the twin lakes of Bachalpsee- made all that exertion worthwhile. The lake is located at an elevation of 2,265 m above sea level.
