2nd New Haw Scout Group

Here is the report of day three of K9, our 2009 expedition to Kandersteg, Switzerland.

K9: Day Three


Sunday was certainly not a day of rest - everyone hiked from the campsite to Oeschinensee lake. The route we hiked followed the Oeschibach river up to the lake. The lake is at an elevation of 1578m - a 300m climb from the village and campsite.

The sun shone all day so we got very hot during the hike up - the glacial waters of the lake were therefore ideal to cool of in. A few minutes walk from the lake is the rodelbahn and the top of the gondala lift - our route back to the village.
