Oh my word. Those mountains. Those ice caves. I think there is hardly a place more beautiful than Switzerland. Reply

I have seen some beautiful places… this might have topped them all. What pushed it to the top spot was the cowbells, which I unfortunately can’t display in the picture 🙁 But cowbells echoed all over those mountains and the lake from the nearby grazing herds. It sounded like a chorus of chimes or something and it was beautiful!
I can hear them now. I think I might pass out from the beauty.
I wish I could post the video here. I will have to try to figure out how to do that, because I did take a few seconds of video of it!
This probably misses the point, but what kind of footwear did they recommend you wear in the ice caves?
Gorgeous photos, by the way!
That is actually a fantastic question! I had on some pretty serious all-terrain and all-weather hiking shoes (by Merrell) for that entire hike and I was glad I had them. The actual ice-cave part of the hike was quite short (but cold!) but it’s at the very top of the alps – so I would recommend something water proof and comfortable for strenuous walking.
