We did the hike from Schynige Platte to faulhorn which is a 4 hr uphill beautiful hike filled with cows, greenery, rocks and lakes. One of National Geographics top hikes but dress accordingly and wear the right shoes and prepare to sweat in any temperatures and wear sunscreen. The hotel was situated impossibly on top of the cliffs overlooking the best views. The hotel offered two meal options (one vegetarian and one Swiss meal) and it was delicious. Breakfast consists of breads, jams, and coffee. We stayed in the dormitory and everyone was respectful of each other and the noise level (no college kids when we were here). There is no hot water or heater but big wool blankets and trough style sinks with cold water (dress appropriately). Climb up to the helicopter pad to enjoy the best views. The hike from Faulhorn to First has the most incredible sights of lake Bachsee and is all downhill. Overall a great experience that is worth the challenging hike!
