From Wengen up the Männlichen

First take the gondola up the Männlichen and then hike down the steep mountain trail back into the valley. And if you want to sweat even more, you can turn around and scale the 951 vertical metres to the summit of the Männlichen.

Adelboden: From Hahnenmoospass to the Engstligenalp

The steep ascent from Hahnenmoospass to the summit is anything but boring: There are spectacular views across glacial areas and as far as the Mittelland, and there is fascinating high-Alpine flora and flora, while the view from the metal stairway that leads to the summit is sure to give you the goosebumps.
