The hiking path that begins right at the top of Mt. Eggishorn is called "From the glacier to the lake". You need no longer expect steep inclines, but primarily a sensational view of the entire Aletsch glacier instead. Once you have gazed to your heart's content at the fantastic panorama, you make your way to Märjelen Lake.
The Aletsch Forest, which is located right next to the largest glacier in the Alps, is a unique nature reserve that has been protected by Pro Natura since 1933. The affiliated nature reserve center is located in Villa Cassel on Riederfurka (Riederalp).
