Trying to put together a route for someone who can't do a long hike. Thinking that they would get from whatever airport they land at to the Jungfrau area by train. Up to Schynige Platte and Piz Gloria etc, then on to Grindelwald and over Grosse Schiedegg to Rosenlaui - Merringen - Engstlenalp - over Jochpass to Engelberg. From there probably up Titlis before moving on to Lucerne and finally to Chur and out to Italy on the Bernina Express. The whole ordeal should fit into a week or so. This plan depends on the lifts at Jochpass being open in early October. The walk from Engstlenalp to the lift would be doable but not the whole walk over and down to Truebsee. So, 2 questions - which tourist office would tell me the season for the Jochpass lifts, Merringen or Engelberg? Second, is there a particular pass we should look into?

Hi Jack,

The lifts at the Jochpass are closed from April 27 to June 19 and November 2 to 13. They're most probably closed the entire period from mid October to mid December, but that's not announced yet. Details are on the Titlis page. If you need more information you can best contact them I think.

Either an 8-day Swiss Travel Pass or a Swiss Half Fare Card would fit the plan.
