HI jatinsmehta,

Day 2 would give me pause - a long day for sure. Everything else seems fairly reasonable but busy (which is ok!).

On day 1 you can incorporate the Golden Pass to Montreux if you like, otherwise yes, you'll just do part of the route on day 7. However the Golden Pass adds about 2 hours to the overall trip so that makes Day 1 harder to accomplish - can't fit everything in unfortunately!

Thanks a ton Lucas,

Agreed, can't fit everything, quite hard to decide what to leave out, i can't add 2 more hours to already long day 1, even i had a similar thought.

Also Titlis & Stanserhorn can be done in a day? pls advice.

After visiting Schilthorn, I might get some spare time, your suggestion on what to be done.

Use the timetable (https://www.myswissalp s.com/timetable) to plan the trips to different mountains to see the timings. It is up to you how much time you want to spend each day traveling etc. Certainly you can do both mountains in one day - it is just a matter if you want to. :)

For suggestions in the Jungfrau region look here: https://www.myswissalp s.com/jungfrauregion/a ctivities
Perhaps upon your return from Schilthorn you can do the walk from Stechelberg to Lauterbrunnen - or from Mürren to Grütschalp
