I will be backpacking solo in the alps Arriving Zurich on the 13th at 1220 pm the. Taking the train straight to Zermatt , spending three days there then the rest will be spent in St. Moritz and Wengen .I am flexible and giving some extra time in each location in case the weather does not cooperate . I’ve looked into other options if this happens , a day trip to Bern or Lucerne
Day 1 Gornegrat and 5 lakes hike
Day 2 Sunnega Glacier paradise
Day 3 Randa Hike at Charles Kuonen Suspension bridge .
Day 4 Glacier express to St Moritz ?
Day 5 Glacier express return to Zermatt ?
Day 6 Wengen (Lauterbrunnen, Mürren, Mannlichen Hike )
Day 7 Wengen Grindelwald,First it Shilthorn
Day 8 Wengen Jungfraujoch
1.3 days ok to explore Zermatt ?
2.Is the glacier express worth the trip for an overnight round trip ? Or I should spend more time to Jungfrau region ?
3.Any other recommendations to do in Zermatt ?
4.Any recommendations to do in Jungfrau ?
5. Is the 8 day travel pass sufficient ? Can I purchase it at the airport in Zurich upon arrival ? Will be planning to do cable cars , gondolas , cogwheels , funiculars and the train to Jungfraujoch . I think the pass is more economical?
Any recommendations and advice is greatly appreciated . I can’t wait for this trip :)
