    Scenic beautiful, easy trekking.
    The less strenuous route leads along the Tannensee comfortably uphill to the Balmeregghorn.

    I think the circular hike (14 km. Or 4 1/2 hours) from / to Melchsee-Frutt is particularly beautiful in midsummer. Then the abundance of flowers is immense, you come across (peacefully) grazing cows everywhere and you can hardly get enough of the panorama of mountains and lakes.

    Largest lake on the four lakes hike. Relatively touristy but well done with nice rest areas.

    Nice hike from Melchsee-Frutt to the Jochpass, the last steeper ascent can alternatively be made with the new six-seater chairlift.
    Relaxation in the "Bärghuis Jochpass" is guaranteed, beautiful large house, great terrace, good food, modern accommodation in various sizes, GREAT!

    The Melchsee-Frutt region is an absolute highlight with the Melchsee! The hike on the Balmeregghorn past the Melchsee is highly recommended! There is also a lot to discover around the lake for families with children

    The hike around the lakes is wonderful. A steep climb just after the first lake and then on the ridge over and down to the second lake. You can also take the small tourist train.
