This is one of my most favourite places in Switzerland and have now visited 5 times - twice for quick day trips up to the beautiful Oeschinensee. and the last three times for 3 day stays in Kandersteg and managing a few walks here. The visit in 2007 for 3 days we had even better weather up at the lake and it was so good to share a memorable last day with VT'ers Rebibi and Bigs.
In 2008 another 3 day stay , we arrived by walking the Gemmi pass via gondola from Leukerbad, made a trip out to the nearby Lotschental valley (stunning scenery) and finally managed the Heuberg loop above lake Oeschinensee - yay! - although not as clear as previous year it was cooler temperature for walking. Please see my Oeschinensee Page for more info and pictures.
Main points of interest are:
crag-ringed Oeschinensee, accessed by a chairlift on eastern part of village and then a 20 min stroll to this pretty alpine lake.
A lift on the opposite side of the valley accesses the Allmenalp.
The lift at the end of the valley climbs to 1900m and heads over to the Gemmi pass linking the Valais region.
A walk in the remote, almost hidden Gasternatal valley and its wild gorge.
