Hello,
We will be making a day trip in the Vallis area, and can either reach Fiesch, or betten by car by arund 2:30pm or so
I was wondering, if you can advice me which of these places are the best for a 1-2 hour hike to Aletsch glacer.

We do not mind taking either the Eggishorn cable car or the Bettemalp cable are.

Any other options available too?

Last but not the least, I heard form eggishorn you can walk to glacier, and then walk through a tunnel to Fiesch?

Hi tsk1979. Both the Eggishorn and Bettmerhorn are great for a visit to the Aletsch glacier. Hiking options, including 1-2 hour walks, are listed at the Eggishorn and Bettmerhorn pages. The hike you refer to starts at Bettmerhorn and ends up at Fiescheralp, along the glacier and through a tunnel. It's the Aletsch Glacier Path mentioned here. However, this won't fit in 1 or 2 hours. You may like this easy hike between Riederalp and Bettmeralp. It doesn't offer a view of the glacier, but you can easily combine this with a visit to the Eggishorn or Bettmerhorn, and it's a great scenic route overlooking valleys and mountains.
