Rising above everything the Säntis is the king in this chain of mighty rocks. And it forms the end of the four day cabin to cabin hike which is full of high points. Formidable bands of rock alternate with idyllic mountain lakes. It becomes more spectacular and more fantastic from day to day. The fourth day becomes the King’s stage. Zwingli Pass, Altmannsattel and Säntis in one day. Terrific.
