The second edition of a popular guidebook to trekking the Tour of the Jungfrau (Schynige Platte to Wilderswil) hut-to-hut in the Swiss Alps -already one of the classic walks in Europe - including new alternative routes for some stages. The trek takes the walker in a horseshoe loop through the Bernese Oberland's most spectacular mountain scenery, in the shadow of such iconic peaks as Wetterhorn, Eiger, Monch and Jungfrau. In a journey of 9 to 10 days the Tour visits pastures, ridges, summits and passes, skirts exquisite mountain lakes and gazes on waterfalls, gorges and glaciers. Accommodation is both plentiful and atmospheric, and the route has lots of bad-weather alternatives. Despite the nearby presence of popular resorts like Grindelwald, Wengen, Lauterbrunnen and Murren, the Tour of the Jungfrau Region explores some surprisingly remote landscapes, including part of a World Natural Heritage Site.
