In Wengen you cross the centre of the village on Dorfstrasse. Hiking on an easy path you soon reach the last chalets of this mountain village and the spot called «In Gassen». In 1971, this was the scene of a landslide that claimed the lives of humans and animals. The chalets and mountain forest are repeatedly destroyed by föhn winds and autumn storms here. The trail leads to the north, along Männlichen rockfalls and under the aerial cableway to the branch off at Parawengi. From here, a steep trail up the mountain slope leads to the Männlichen plateau at 2230 metres above sea level From the Lauterbrunnen Valley to Lake Thun The views from the long mountain ridge are impressive and rich in contrast. With the Eiger, Mönch & Jungfrau constantly in sight, on one side views extend down to Grindelwald’s wide valley floor, bordered to the east by the rock bastions of the Wetterhorn and Mättenberg. On the other, the views deep down into the Lauterbrunnen valley are spectacular. In the distance Lake Thun, the Niederhorn and the Schrattenfluh.
Mountain trail with some exposed passages.
Normal hiking gear, hiking boots with good soles and walking sticks help with the ascent.
