Walk 8006 - Schynige Platte - Faulhorn - Bachalpsee - First - Bern / Berne - a detailed walk description from Walking Switzerland

One of the classic walks in the Bernese Oberland. The views and immediate scenery are superb even on a cloudy day. With sun and good visibility this walk would be hard to better. The paths are generally good although there are some sections that occasional walkers may find hard going. Good footwear is essential and you need to be prepared for bad weather en-route as there are some lengthy sections without shelter.

Schynige Platte hiking trails alpine garden, Faulhorn, First and Breitlauenen

This one-day hike is in a class of its own. The vegetation in the austere karst landscape of the Güw area is sparse. The trail starts at the Schynige Platte summit station, leads past the mountain huts at Oberberg on its way to the western slope of the Loucherhorn and passes the mountain’s summit to the south. Continue over the Egg in a gentle ascent along the slope of the Sägissa; below you will see the shimmering Sägistalsee mountain lake.
