The "4-Lake Hike" in the Jochpass region is certaily one of the most beautiful hikes in Central Switzerland. The stunning mountain world around mighty Mt. Titlis, the singularly beautiful flora and the mirror-like Lake Trübsee, the sapphire-blue Engstlen Lake, the turquois colored Tannen Lake, the picture-perfect Melch Lake and the breathtaking views of the Bernese Alps in the distance are only a few of the highlights of this hiking tour.

Description

Melchsee-Frutt – Melchsee – Tannensee – Engstlensee – Jochpass – Trübsee

The starting point of the 4-Lake Hike is the cablecar station of Melchsee-Frutt. From the very start the fantastic world of mountains and lakes unfolds before your eyes. The route runs along Lake Melch, via the picturesque chapel from Melchsee-Frutt to the Tannen Lake. This lake is the only artificial one among the four lakes. From Tannalp the descent takes you to the deep-blue Engstlen Lake. This is where the ascent to the Jochpass starts. From the summit of the pass you be rewarded with a view of the valley below. On the other side rises the mighty Titlis Massif. A descent across lovely Alpine meadows leads you to crystal-clear Lake Trüb, where the 4-lake tour ends.
