The deep blue Engstlensee is one of the most popular destinations for excursions in the Bernese Oberland. Engstlenalp is a special place of power and has become mythical. You will need "the power" for this tour. The edged mule tracks taking you from Innertkirchen through Gental to the lake are not at all easy. Only muscle power and technical skill will take you to a landscape of unique beauty.
The hiking tour’s highlight is the crossing of the Sätteli Ridge between Tällistock and Sättelistöckleni. While the gentle ascent from Engstlenalp opens up magnificent vistas of the Melchsee region, on the descent to the Tälli Restaurant and Mountain House, the Gadmen Valley and the historic Susten Pass road come into view. Here the Gadmer Dolomites present themselves in all their imposing glory.
