Hello, please help. We are arriving in Zurich 31 July and travelling to Engelberg, staying 2 nights before treking the Swiss Alpine route, overnight stops will be Engstlenalp, Meiringen, Grindelwald, Lauterbrunnen, Griesalp, Kandersteg, Adelboden, Lenk and ending in Saanen, 14 days in all. From there, one of us goes back to Zurich airport, the other to Italy, probably Stresa. I am confused about the best rail pass or even if point to point tickets will be best. There may be times along the trek that we will use cable cars, gondolas or chairlifts along the way if we cannot enjoy the strenuous walking. We have been highly recommended Jungfrau railway also. Train travel to Engelberg and from Saanen is our method of choice, but which pass would you recommend.
