Photographer's Note

Shiltalp is small alpine farm that serves food and refreshments. In the background is the summit of the Schilthorn. This photo was taken from a walk that started in the village of Mürren, which can be reached by post bus from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, and then by cable car up to Mürren. This walk explores the area to the south and southwest of Mürren. It uses well maintained and signed paths throughout. The views are excellent not only to the Eiger, Mönch, and Jungfrau but also the string of peaks that head west from the latter summit with the Breithorn of particular note. The earlier stages of the route follow the "Northface Trail" with information boards placed at regular intervals describing the routes of ascent for the major peaks in view. Due to lack of time I ended my walk in Gimmelwald where I took the cable car down to Stechelberg, post bus to Lauterbrunnen for train connection back to my base in Grindelwald. I think it is better to stay in the mountain village of Mürren or Gimmelwald to better explore this section of the Jungfrau.

For more photos from this walk see Mürren to Gimmelwald walking theme. More photos will be added.
