Lake Oeschinen

Highly recommended
The road leading to the lower station of the ski lift heads left off the main Kandersteg road just after the bridge at Oeschinenach. From the upper station, a path descends to the shores of a lake in a vast amphitheatre surrounded by cliffs and topped by the snowy Blümlisalp massif. On reaching the lake, walkers have various paths to choose from; keener types will want to return to Kandersteg on foot. A summer luge run (Rodelbahn) will appeal to thrill-seekers.
