    Just around the next bend...

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Daubensee

    Jenna was not enjoying this hike. Not only was it all uphill, but the sun was blazing hot. She got tired of me saying, " The lake will probably be just around the next bend." We made it to the lake with 15 minutes to spare before the festival began. Hooray!

    Half-way there

    by Rhondaj Updated Aug 29, 2004
    Schwarenbach Berghotel

    The Schwarenbach Mountain Hotel is about the half-way point. There is an outdoor terrace with a nice seating area for a refreshment break. Not a big area, so everyone shares tables and tales.

    For those who always have money burning a hole in their pocket, a little hut is outside the hostel, by the terrace area. Here you can buy postcards and trinkets. (candy too)

    beginning our hike

    Our hike begins on the Kandersteg side at the Bergstation Sunnbuel. Of course, you could skip the Cable Car ride to the mountain station and begin at the bottom.
    So:
    Bergstation Sunnbuel
    through the Spittelmatte
    passing by the Schwarenbach Berghotel
    onward to Daubensee
    takes about 1.5 to 2 hours.
    You could then pass by the Daubensee and take the ride on down (or again hike) into Leukerbad.

    Can't Help Thinking

    rocky, beautiful, watch for alpine flowers

    I bet this hike is a lot easier starting from the Leukerbad side towards Kandersteg. From THAT direction, this hike would all be downhill...

    And then...

    by Rhondaj Written Aug 29, 2004

    After a pleasant 10-15 minute walk through the pastures, the path begins to ascend. It's all uphill from there on. Mountains begin to tower around us.

    Spittelmatte

    high mountain valley

    The hike begins innocently enough through the spittelmatte, a wide, green valley, full of grazing cows with those musical bells.
