The fantastic mountain scenery around Mount Titlis, the unique flora, the deep blue mountain lakes and the breathtaking views of the Central Swiss Alps are just a few of the highlights of this hike.
The Melchsee-Frutt cable car station is the starting point for the so-called «four-lake hike». First you walk to Melchsee - the sparkling natural reservoir - where fishing is becoming quite popular. Take a peek inside the chapel, which is often booked for weddings. Then it's on to Lake Tannen, where you can grill your lunch and have a picnic on a covered patio.
It's just a bit farther up to Tannalp, and then it's back down again to the beautiful Engstlensee - which is full of fish. Beforehand, you can sample local cheese at the dairy. This area is a place of power - especially near the tall rock that stands next to a pine tree. The ascent to the Joch pass starts near the lake. You can have a snack at the mountain lodge before heading to the fourth lake - Trübsee - on the other side of the mountain.
You can discover Trübsee's beauty by rowboat, before heading on to Engelberg.
You can also book an overnight stay for this hike. To the offer.
