Hiking Mythen

November 10, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

This is an impression of our hike up the "Grosser Mythen" close to Zurich. This mountain is quite special because it stands alone, has a wonderful view, it is possible to hike on a save trail with ropes to secure certain passages and there is a restaurant on top with great food. If it makes sense to have a restaurant up there is another question. Most of the food and drinks need to be brought by helicopter. 

The restaurant on the right side of this picture is also the location of a mountain guide company. The name of the company is "White Mountain" like the second highest peak in the Sierra Nevada. For us it's very special to see this name since we hiked the peak half a year ago.

The picture below shows the side where you hike the mountain. The zig-zag trail is visible in the lower section. It continues behind the trees and on top is the hut already visible.

It is rather important to be prepared for such a strenuous climb. We brought "Ginger Zinger" from California to get the necessary energy.

The view is already fantastic from the point where we started the steep part. There is cable car for the first section that we did not take. All or nothing;-)

About 90 Minutes later is the lady on top of the mountain with a gorgeous and breathtaking view towards Lake Lucern. This is the part where Switzerland was founded in 1291. That's a really historic place.

Below is the other side with the view towards the mountains of the Canton of Glarus. Those peaks are quite high and always covered with snow and ice.

Here are two panoramic shots from the mountain top...

...and the obligate selfie as proof that we both climbed the mountain. 

With love from Switzerland!
