    Breathtaking and awe-inspiring - experience the glacier up close and enjoy it with humility 😊

    Glacier access, imposing and very impressive.

    If you go to Fiescheralp instead op Eggishorn you have a very nice panoramic path, where you can enter the Aletschgletsjer. It's really a must see!

    From the main route there is the possibility to descend along a stony ground to get to the glacier.
    The path is very steep and slippery, as a small stream bathes the boulders, and the further you go down the more the size of the stones grow, until they become huge slabs of stone.
    Essential stiff shoes with a nice grip!
    Enjoy the show and don't go into the glacier without equipment (or a guide)!

    I was there in mid-September and the gorge was dry, so it was possible to go down to the cavity that gives the underground access to the glacier (impassable without equipment) a little with difficulty along the stone.
    Beware of damp stones and smooth and slippery stone slabs.

    The cave that opens below the glacier is impressive.
    From here it is impossible to go without equipment and I imagine without a guide.
    Super attention in going down to here, the water flows over the rocks, which become slippery and unstable.
