Hi Irfan,

See: interlaken.ch/en/excursion-harder-kulm.html

It is about 1322 meters above sea level. Takes less than 10 minutes to reach the top.

50 percent discount with Swiss Pass see


Good Luck!

There is also a cable car ride from Grindelwald to Mannlichen that is not very scary. It is actually a bit outside Grindelwald in Grund. Views from Mannlichen are spectacular .

The cable cars up to Gimmelwald from Stechelberg and up to Schilthorn from Murren were a bit scary, especially on the descent.

If you have a Swiss pass, the cable car and short train ride from Lauterbrunnen up to Grutschalp and on to Murren is free. As is the train ride from Interlaken to Lauterbrunnen.

Grindelwald Grund to Männlichen is indeed spectacular, it is one of the longest gondola lifts in all of Switzerland. The gondolas are 4-seater ski gondolas and the trip takes 30 minutes. With Swiss Pass it is discounted 50%. The high Alps gondolas are quite expensive, even with the discount. So you may be best served by westendgaz's suggestion above.

That's not a cable car though, it's a funicular.

Beatenberg to the Niederhorn is not very long or intimidating, and has medium-sized cabins rather than the big ones that swing as they go over the pylons.

There is no cable car at Harder Kulm. It is reached by funicular.

I think your best bet would be the Lauterbrunnen to Grutchalp lift. It barely gets off the ground and only takes about 10 min. Worst one would probably be the Gimmelwald down to Stechelberg. Very steep sheer drop even for experienced riders it can get a little scary.
