I was last here as a kid in 1976. I looked at these old 1976 photos in our album before returning in July 2013. I was shocked to see that they added HUGE electrical towers and power lines all over at the top that have completely destroyed the once spectacular view (Unfortunately I didn't take more photos of the ruined view to post here). I can't believe that someone approved this HORRIFIC electrical tower/lines all over project. I don't understand why they couldn't move these towers over a few miles or something to preserve the view. I really wanted to give this 1 star because of the horrible, ugly, power towers but the ride up was very beautiful. Looks like there was once a nice hotel at the top that is boarded up and looks bad. Also- we walked to the Gemmi tram from our hotel in Leukerbad (next to the big pool warmed by the geyser) and the tram was VERY difficult to find-we just tried to judge where the base station was by looking for the bottom of the tram lines. The town needs to add several signs directing you to the Gemmi Tram! It was a long walk in the heat, and you have to walk up quite a way to get there.
