First stage of the Blüemlisalphorn Überschreitung: from Oeschinen to Blüemlisalpe

The Blüemlisalpgruppe is a glaciated mountain range in the Bernese Alps. It consists of three main peaks: the Blüemlisalphorn (3661 m), the Wyssi Frau (3659 m) and the Morgenhorn (3621 m). These main peaks are preceded by three smaller elevations: the Rothorn (3297 m), the Stock ("Ufem Stock", 3221 m) and the Wildi Frau (3259 m). The tour described here is the ascent of the three main peaks from east to west, the descent is via the Rothornsattel. Without question, this is one of the most beautiful firn routes in the Alps. But it should only be attempted by experienced alpinists, because even in excellent conditions, the ascent requires some strength and skill. On the first stage of the tour we hike from the Oeschinen mountain station über narrow paths and rocky trails. Along the Via Alpina (Gründerweg) we pass the Oeschinensee and up to the Blüemlisalpe. This stage is the shorter and easier of the two, but it also impresses with its beautiful scenery and can also serve as a day hike
