I am looking to hike up to the summit of Eggishorn, and get back down somehow. I'm collecting information from various sites to figure out what is the best option - taking into account having a decent hiking challenge, monetary value, and great views.

I am most likely going to be doing the following:

  • Cable car from Betten Talstation to Bettmerhorn ($24.80)
  • Hike up from Bettmerhorn up to Eggishorn summit, and down to Fiescheralp (4.3 miles)
  • Cable car down from Fiescheralp to Fiesch ($20)

But am considering these changes/additions and would like your opinions/facts:

  • Doing this in the opposite direction (Fiesch > Betten Talstation) - which way would have better views? which way is more difficult?
  • Hiking from Bettmeralp to Bettmerhorn (or opposite) - not sure how far or how difficult this is?
  • Hiking from Fiescheralp to Fiesch (or opposite) - not sure how far or how difficult this is?

I THINK these prices and distances are correct (Please let me know if they seem incorrect)

Thanks in advance for your help!

Jonathan-- Have not done this peak, but wanted to share this website, which may have useful information. Looks like a fabulous view opportunity, with short/moderate/long approach options that seem non-technical, assuming you stay off the glacier. No price info, unfortunately. ishorn/154670
