Aescher Mountain Hotel In Swiss Alps
After several hours hiking up to the Ebenalp mountain, I finally arrived to the Aescher Hotel. I was so thirsty that I went inside right away to buy a Coke, the most expensive Coke I've ever paid but it was worth every penny.
This hotel located underneath a huge cliff is more of a guest house since it has no more than 3 rooms, it features a restaurant in the entrance that to be honest was pretty busy. How so many people got to this point? Well, they took the easiest path, grabbing the cable car going up to the mountain and then a short path down to the hotel.
I took a rest enjoying the spectacular views and continued to the top of the mountain to grab the cable car that was going down.
Walking The Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe
I think this is one of the most spectacular places I've ever been. It is called Jungfraujoch - Top of Europe, it is an alpine attraction at 11782 ft. of altitude.
Believe it or not there is a train station inside this mountain, the highest in Europe, there are restaurants, there is an ice cave with many ice sculptures, amazing views everywhere you look. Check out the people walking in the snow, I went there before taking this picture and it was impressive and it was so cold. To take this picture I took an elevator to the Sphinx observatory 383 ft. further up.
The Great Aletsch Glacier
This is the view of the Aletsch Glacier from the Sphinx (Scientific Station and Observatory) at 11,000 ft. The Great Aletsch Glacier is the largest glacier in the Alps. It has a length of about 23 km and covers more than 120 square kilometres in the eastern Bernese Alps.
