Schynige Platte – Männdlenen – Faulhorn – Bachalpsee - First
The route begins at Schynigen Platte, and takes you first in the direction of Faulhorn. You will traverse gorgeous alpine meadows, full of grazing sheep in the summer. Later on the route goes steeply upwards, crossing rocky regions. You will finally reach Faulhorn via a ridge path. When the weather is nice there are a lot of visitors at the mountain restaurant and rooms are fully booked for months. A zig-zag path leads from Faulhorn down to Bachalpsee (Bachalp Lake). A relatively flat path with spectacular views leads to First, the conclusion of the magnificent alpine tour.
The careful planning of a tour will ensure that you also derive the maximum pleasure and enjoyment from it. Please take the time to contact the local information centre and enquire about route and weather conditions before setting off. Your intended trail may be fully or partially closed, depending on the time of year and weather conditions.
