Gemmenalphorn (2061 m.a.s.l.) and which veers down towards Habkern. The snowy peaks of the Bernese Alps vie with the karst cliffs of Hohgant and the Prealpine Region.

Description

The views are unto themselves on this challenging ridge hike connecting the Niederhorn (Peak 1963 m.a.s.l.), easily accessible by chairlift, with Mt. Gemmenalphorn (2061 m.a.s.l.) and which veers down towards Habkern. To the South get a glimpse of shimmering Lake Thun, framed in a mosaic of dark forests and light-green pastures, and above it the mountain triumvirate Eiger, Mönch und Jungrfrau.To the North is the sickle-shaped Justi Valley which ends up in Eriz. It is recommended to walk silently in order to maybe catch ibex playing on the rocks and cliffs of the Niederhorngrat. In the North, the Hohgant towers high, and there is a primeval forest-like region in the karst-like landscape on its Southern flank. Then pass through the bird paradise Seefeld, which is part of the nature reserve Hohgant. Here, the hiking trail winds over the Grünenberg Pass and through the Trogen Fen, down into Habkern.
How to get there:
Drive or take public transportation to Beatenberg via Thun. From there, take the chairlift to the peak of Mt. Niederhorn.
