Hi all,

I have heard that the G?schenental is one of the most beautiful valley. The lake and the surrounding mountain are set up right to make a picturesque scenery.

We take the train to G?schenen, then the bus up to the lake. The hike is around the lake, but will not be a walk in the park. There are some steep steps and paths to pass, however with little care it should not be hard to pass. We hike up (and down) around 470m and will take us 4 hours to go all around.

The train schedule is as follows:

Z?rich HB ab 09:09
Arth-Goldau an 09:48

Arth-Goldau ab 09:52
G?schenen an 10:48

G?schenen ab XX:XX (tbd)
G?schenenalp an XX:XX (tbd)

Duration: 1:39

If you miss us on the meeting point, please go directly to the train and catch us there. If you don't find us, give me a call - please don't sent SMS "W r u?" as I am very slow in typing back a whole explanation on where we are - a call is quicker.

To bring along:
- Water (min. 1 Liter)
- Food (Cookies, Snacks, Sandwiches, Grilled Chicken, etc)
- Sun and Rain protection (creme, glasses, jackets)
- Extra clothes (after the hike)
- Steady shoes (sneakers - or in UK English "trainers", are on your own judgment)
Just to have a good size of a group, I limit the people to 25. If you want to come anyway, please call me.

I will buy Group tickets, hence, when signing up, please let me know if you want to be included and if you have a Halbtax, GA, or "none". It is usually a good idea to be in the groupticket as everyone gets 20% discount plus a reserved seat on train, but it can only consider those that stick with the group from and back to Z?rich). Note that those with GA adds to the number of the group to meet the minimum required number to be a group.

I hold the right to cancel the trip due to weather or illness reasons. I'll do my best to let you know as soon as possible. Please look into the website and email for any changes before you head to the meeting point, or at least the night before the event.

Disclaimer: the hike is on your own risk and judgement. The organizer holds no responsibility on any injuries or death that might result directly or indirectly from this event. The organizer does not warrant on the accuracy of the description of the hike. It is your responsibility to assess your condition for this hike. If you are unsure of the hike, make a research on the website. By agreeing to come to this hike, you automatically accept the terms explained above.

Ok, that said, lets go out into the Swiss Alps and enjoy the mountains!

Hope to see you then!
