ENGELBERG TO GRINDELWALD

Day 6 Friday 11.8.00  

 

Trubsee

We took the cable car up to Trubsee. This is a much grander affair than many and eventually ends near the summit of the Titlis. From the cable car station we walked past the lake with incredible reflections of the mountains. The eye is drawn all the time to the Titlis, with much more snow on than in many summer photos. The path to the Jochpass (2207m) has clearly been rerouted, as it no longer follows the cable car to the summit due to erosion. At first we were a little concerned about this but a farmer assured us we were on the correct path.  

View from Jochpass with Engstlensee

The pass itself is a little disappointing as it is a jumble of hotels and cable car stations. The path falls gently towards Engstlenalp passing the absolutely still waters of the Engstlensee and a large number of day walkers, something we hadnít seen a lot of before.

Looking east to Jochpass from Baumgarten

After a drink at the hotel we started on the long path that runs high above the valley on terraces and runs all the way to Reuti, through meadows,woods and mountainside. From Reuti we took the large cable car down into Meiringen and the English and American tourists.
