Tour of the Jungfrau Region by Book Resume:
This guidebook describes a 111km circuit amid some of the most spectacular mountain scenery in all the Swiss Alps. The Tour of the Jungfrau Region is described as a clockwise hut-to-hut circuit, beginning at Schynige Platte and ending at Wilderswil, broken into 10 stages (with a number of high and low- level alternatives offered). The route is suitable for hikers with some alpine experience. The 111km trek takes you 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. The guide contains all the information needed, including a trek planner, maps and profiles. On practically every stage modestly priced dormitories are available and, as meals are provided everywhere, walkers can trek unencumbered by heavy rucksacks.
