4 Lakes Hike from Melchsee Frutt to Engelberg

Dear all,

its been ages since I organized something so here I am with something different - a spontaneous hike. Actually my favorite one this summer.
Here is the link for you with some information:

We will take the train at 8:04 am from Zurich main station.
Please buy your ticket to Stöckalp ( Melchsee-Frutt) and return from Engelberg.
Please also include the lift Engstlenalp-Jochpass that we will take down to Trübsee at the end.
I have done this hike several times in the past and will not walk down to Trübsee at the end, the one time I tried I ended up with the most awful muscle ache, I am not keen on a 2nd try. However who is keen and more fit shall go.

SBB currently has a special offer for this hike. See link below:

Also please note that this will be a relaxing Sunday hike. We take breaks and there won't be any rush.

Please bring along:

# good mood, laughter

# suncream

# hiking boots

# camera

# raingear (weather can change anytime in mountains)

# water and drinks

# picknick

Also note that everyone participating is responsible for their own safety!

Depending on what time we reach Engelberg station we will take the train back. Arriving in Zurich between 7pm & 8 pm.
As much as I always enjoy having many people around for drinks and the bar outing, I will limit the participation to the hike so that the group doesnt get to big.

The hike will be cancelled if the weather forecast is bad and that will be announced Saturday morning. Therefore please check before you buy your ticket!

Looking forward to seeing some of you on Sunday!

Cheers, Astrid

      Hi Anirvan, I m afraid but I prefer to keep the group small. Maybe we see you next time!

    Good day all, the hike takes place. Weather is looking really good.
    See you all tomorrow!
    @ Tereza: If you dont find us on the train, I suggest we meet you in Sarnen. We get there at 9:18 am and take the bus 21 to Stöckalp at 9:43 am. I m sure we will manage to meet in Sarnen :-) See you then!

    Hi Astrid, great hike, no chance of doing it on Saturday instead, as there are already (2 I think?) hikes being organized for Sunday this week?
