The fantastic mountain scenery around Mount Titlis, the unique flora, the deep blue mountain lakes and the breathtaking views of the Central Swiss Alps are just a few of the highlights of this hike.
The Melchsee-Frutt cable car station is the starting point for the so-called “four-lake hike”. First you walk to Melchsee – the sparkling natural reservoir – where fishing is becoming quite popular. Take a peek inside the chapel, which is often booked for weddings. Then it’s on to Lake Tannen, where you can grill your lunch and have a picnic on a covered patio.
It’s just a bit farther up to Tannalp, and then it’s back down again to the beautiful Engstlensee – which is full of fish. Beforehand, you can sample local cheese at the dairy. This area is a place of power – especially near the tall rock that stands next to a pine tree. The ascent to the Joch pass starts near the lake. You can have a snack at the mountain lodge before heading to the fourth lake – Trübsee – on the other side of the mountain.
You can discover Trübsee’s beauty by rowboat. Before heading on to Engelberg – the end of the hike – stop at Restaurant Untertrübsee for the best meringue desserts.
