Is anyone interested to spontanously do a hiking of 4-5 hours on the Sunday 23rd of September? I would like to go to Glarus and walk from Elm to Schwanden or viceversa. It will be sunny, so why not spent it on the mountains, right?
The idea is to take the train on the 08:40 from the HB Z?rich with destination Schwanden. Meeting point will be in front of the ticketing counters at least 10 minutes before departure. Then take a short bus that leads us to the gondola in Kies. We go up to Mettmen and start our walk from 1610 to 2200 meters and, after a rest on the top with a spectacular view, go down to ?mp?chli where we take the gondola back to Elm. The walk is really not difficult, but might be long (between 4 to 5 hours with rest). A bus leads us to back to Schwanden.
I would suggest to everybody bring a picnic and enough water along.
The prices are:
Without a Halbtax: CHf 48 retour from Z?rich to Schwanden and back, plus CHF 24 that includes buses and gondolas that takes us from Schwanden to Elm and back.
With Halbtax; CHF 24 Z?rich to Schwanden and back, plus CHF 19 that includes buses and gondolas that takes us from Schwanden to Elm and back.
I know these sound a bit expensive, but it is worth it. It is nice to say, there are enough restaurants to sit down and rest.
If anyone interested, please let me know by email or phone[masked] 28.
I?ll confirm the go or not go of the hiking depending on the weather or the quorum, which with 2 more people is fine with me.
