Hiking in the Bernese Oberland mountains

Last week K. was counting the days until the weekend because she was looking forward to do some hiking again in Wengen, a small village in the Berner Oberland mountains. Today when we are back I completely understand the reason of her excitement: It’s indeed one of the most beautiful parts of Switzerland, offering some breathtaking views of the Bernese mountains. For the first hiking trail, we parked in Lauterbrunnen, took a train to Wengen, got in the cable car to Männlichen and from there we walked all the way to Kleine Scheidegg. This trail was particularly surreal because you are walking in the rim of a mountain more than 2000 meters above the sea level, with some astonishing landscapes, but at the same time you find on your way cows pasturing, always joined by the sound of their typical Swiss bells tinkling. Unfortunately I didn’t have my camera with me but I tried to capture one of those moments with the camera of my phone.
