2-day hike Bluemlisalp

This hike leads us to a very beautiful spot of Switzerland which also belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage.
The hike Griesalp-Hohtürli-Bluemlisalp-Oeschenen-Kandersteg. For more information see:
http://www.myswitzerl...
1. Day With the train to the beautiful Klien Valley and then with the bus up the steepest bus route of Europe (28%) to the Griesalp. From there we walk up, with a ‘pit stop’ in the Bundalp, until we reach the mountain lodge Bluemlisalp at the top. In the Bluemlisalp lodge we will party until we’re even more tired and stay overnight. Walking time on this day: approx. 4.5 hours.
2. Day Descend to the 'pit stop' Unterbärgli before we come to the fantastic Oeschenen lake, where those who want can take a swim in the cold water or test the 750 m sledging run. Then we take the gondola (or walk +1h) down to Kandersteg. From Kandersteg we take the train back to Zurich. Walking time on this day approx. 3.5h (+1h).

Cost estimation Train Zurich-Griesalp (without/with Halbtax) approx. CHF 77.80/38.90 Accommodation (incl. dinner, dormitory bed, breakfast) in the Bluemlisalp CHF 80.00 Train Kanderstep-Zurich (without/with Halbtax) approx. CHF 67.00/33.50
Down Payment Signing up for the event works on a first come first serve basis. However, as I have to book the accommodation in advance and want to avoid having to pay the costs if someone doesn’t show up or cancels his participation at an unduly time (as in past events), I have to insist on a down payment of CHF 80.00. Consequently, the reception of the money will be relevant in the end and not the sign up on the meetup website. The down payment will be reimbursed if the cancellation doesn’t lead to additional costs. Please transfer the money to: NEUE AARGAUER BANK, 5400 BADEN Beneficiary: Reto Emmengger CH[masked] 6000 0 Konto no.:[masked] BIC/SWIFT AHHBCH22XXX Clearing No.: 5881 Keyword: Hike Bluemlisalp When you transferred the money, please drop me a line. I will then send you a confirmation.
Note This hike was orginally scheduled on July 24./25 but had to be cancelled because of bad weather. This is the alternative date. Therefore, people who have already signed up for the July 24./25 event will be privileged for this event. The rest of the free places will be filled up according to the sign up order. PLEASE ONLY SIGN UP WHEN YOU REALLY KNOW THAT YOU WILL COME.
