Stockhorn

You get a pretty great view from the top of the Stockhorn, a peak in the Bernese Alps which is conveniently served by a cablecar. Here’s what you can see if you hitch a ride to the top and walk down again, as Tanya and I did in June.

Eiger, Mönch, Jungfrau, and most of the Bernese Alps.
A view so good it broke the chair.

From the top of the cablecar you can walk through a short (and cold) tunnel to a platform built into the cliff on Stockhorn’s steep north side; from there you can see Thun and the plains around.

Thun and its Thunersee.

We walked down from the top towards the Oberstocksee (which was still frozen, a solid white amidst the spring grasses), and through the crockus flowers to the mid-station of the cablecar.
