Swiss Alpine Passes

Trip ReportJames Hipkiss

In the Summer of 2012 I undertook a solo walk across the Swiss Alps, roughly following the Alpine Pass Route and camping along the way. Overall, from Sargans to Geneva, it took about 3 weeks, with around 15 days solid walking and a few rest days when I found a particularly nice spot. Route: Sargans - Weistannen - Elm - Linthal - Brusti - Blackenalp - Engslenalp - Meiringen - First - Wengen - Griesalp - Kandersteg - Adelboden - Lenk (via Simmenfalle) - Gsteig - Col des Mosses - Montreaux - Lausanne - Geneva
