In less than two hours the hiker moves between two worlds that are geographically close, but historically and culturally completely different.
The Binn Valley is Switzerland's treasure chest, where most mountain crystals are found. The area therefore attracts guests from everywhere in the world eager to hunt glittering crystals. Mt Eggerhorn is the best vantage point in the area. From here, see the Bernese Alps, the Goms Valley and even the Aletsch glacier.
