Hohgant: Schrattenkalk limestone formations and white-peaked mountains as tempting as meringues


The mighty Hohgant rises at the borderline between Entlebuch and Bernese Oberland, guarding the entrance to the High Alps. A very rewarding but at the same time challenging tour takes you from Habkern to the Furggengütsch, opening up a panoramic vista of the Alps, Mittelland and the Jurassic mountains.
