I mean... Waw! Incredible! When you reach the eggishorn with the cable car and you see the Aletschgletscher is an enormous surprise. And probably is one of the cheapest places to see that glacier, much more than Jungfraujoch.

You can reach Eggishorn either by cable car from Fresh or Fiesheralp, OR, by hiking up all the way, but I would suggest start your hike from Fiescheralp as the view would be more exposed with Matterhorn, Fiesch Glacier within your view. Once you have...More

This was an amazing place for views, from the top of the cable cars you can see the Aletsch glacier to its full, the Matterhorn and all the surrounding Alp's. The short walk up to the top was steep and was mostly climbing boulders so...More

Amazing panoramic views from the top. Cable car ticket is not cheap but it's great for those who don't have time to hike.

We took two cable cars to the top of Eggishorn and had a breathtaking panorama of several 4,000 + meter peaks with Aletsch Glacier in between them. We then hiked down the slope of the mountain.
