The five lakes hike

The five lakes hike begins in Blauherd and leads east to the gorgeous Lake Stelli. One of the many moraine trails descends to the idyllic larch-fringed Grinji Lake. Take the gravel lane to cross the rocky landscape of the small Findel Creek and reach the other side of the valley where you can walk along the ice-cold Grün Lake. Descend leisurely towards Gant and on to Mosjie Lake, then Eggenalp and finally Lei Lake where it is possible to relax and swim.
