    cablecar to Hohsaas

    Kreuboden is sitauated at 2397m but a further cable-car from here takes you up to a height of 3300m to the Hohsaas. Landscape is more rocky and barren, steep trails up here too along the mountain ridges, but the views of the Hohlaubgletscher are amazing.

    cable-car station

    Take the easy way up to admire the alpine vistas and start of high level hikes by taking the gondola from Saas Grund to Kreuzboden.
    The valley station is situated a short walk from the centre of Saas Grund - just past the llama farm.

    While driving through the lovely mountainous regions of Switzerland we suddenly came to a toll booth where we had to pay 25 CHF. We were a bit surprised but just payed and drove on. A bit further there was a traffic light and a couple of cars were standing in front of it... as we saw people getting out of their cars, we started wondering where we were...
    We got out of the car too and asked a guy a bit further what was going on...
    Well, we had to take the train to cross the mountain... while we thanked the guy for his help we started laughing like idiots cause we didn't expect that at all.. (at that moment we got a message to see where we were... too funny to reply that you're waiting for your train when everyone knows you're by car :-)
    But suddenly we started to worry cause we had seen a sign that said... ITALY... so we were a bit worried that the train would take us all the way to italy. Luckily (or not) it didn't :-)
    We drove on the train and had a 10 minute drive through the mountain... amazing !
    The trainride saved us 1 and a half hours drive !

    On our way back it took us 2 hours extra because there was a traffic jam to take the train, but hey that's what you get with road trips :-)
