Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!What
: Sunday, October 17,[masked]:45 AMWhere
: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
I suggest to go hiking in Adelboden.
The idea would be to hike from downtown Adelboden towards Oey-> Unter dem Birg and towards the Engstligen-waterfalls. They are amongst the largest and most beautiful in Switzerland with a 2000 feet (600 meter vertical drop). This hike takes approx. 2.50 hours (Adelboden is at 1350 meters and waterfall at around 1550 meter to give you an idea as to height difference). We will NOT walk to top of waterfalls since this is mountain track where you need excellent shoes.
Then we would follow path 71 back to Adelboden (this hike takes 2.30 hours). So total hike 5 hours. The idea would be to eat something at the chalet Unter dem Birg however just in case the chalet would be closed, please bring food with you since there are no other restaurants on the track.
departure 8am-> 9.34 Spiez /train
9.42 spiez->9.55 frutigen /train
10 frtuigen-> 10.28 adelboden (bus)
Suggest to take train back at
16.50 adelboden Post-> 17.22 Frutigen
17.32 frutigen-> Bern 18.20
18.32 Bern-> 19.28 zurich
To take along:
* sturdy shoes;
* protective raingear (it can rain any time in the mountains)
* snacks/food/drinks (in case chalet/hut is not open)
The hike is not difficult and can be done by most of you, though we walk at a normal pace- so you need to have some condition.
PS: Since the train departs at 8am, I'd like to go for the train at 7.45/7.50- therefor please do not arrive at 7.50 and then starts buying tickets but come earlier (same for those of you who do not have ticket). I am abroad all week and arrive back in switzerland in the night of saturday/sunday, so can't organize Group tickets. Tickets to buy: Return ticket to adelboden Post.
