Helvetia part IV: A pretty nice day off


I started my day off by taking the Sunnbüel cable car up at 8.30. From the cable car station, I started hiking towards Gemmipass passing the mountain hotel, Schwarenbach, around 9.30. I continued hiking after a short break at Schwarenbach. After hiking uphill for a while, the path suddenly started to go along the lakeside of Daubensee.

After the lakeside path, the route reached quite quickly the viewpoint of Gemmipass. At the viewpoint just by the Gemmipass cable car station, I had my packed lunch and took some photos of the mountains and the view down towards the town of Leukerbad. There was also a mountain side restaurant, where I had a coke. Actually, it was pretty amazing to drink a coke on the terrace, which was almost hanging from a cliff at the altitude of around 2340 meters, while Leukerbad locates at around 1400 meters.

Then, I decided to head back towards Schwarenbach and Sunnbüel cable car station.
