---Aletsch Glacier track route-----

Is the cable car operational from Bettmeralp to Bettmerhorn during summer period? From Jun to Aug 2017? I can't find the time table for the route on the Aletsch Arena website. If the route is not operational, what is the alternative hiking route?

Thank you!

Hi DanielSiow and welcome to MySwissAlps!

The cable car is running as of 15.06.17 - you can find the schedule for that gondola on the SBB timetable here. Bettmeralp BAB (Bettmerhorn) TO Bettmergrat (Bettmeralp) is what you are looking for?

I am not sure why it isn't up on https://www.aletschare na.ch/cableways/timeta ble/

Hi Lucas, appreciate your reply!

SBB timetable is showing no connection. Is there any bus connection in Bettmerhorn to the nearby train station should the gondola is not in operation? If I take the opposite direction?

If you are looking to get up to the Bettmerhorn you can take the gondola there in the summer and winter seasons - as noted on my earlier post you can find it on SBB timetable.

Enter the following: Bettmeralp BAB (Bettmerhorn) TO Bettmeralp BAB (Bettmerhorn)

There is a hike of about 20 minutes between Bettmeralp station and Bettmeralp BAB (Bettmerhorn) station that is unavoidable as far as I know before taking the gondola up to the top station (Bettmeralp BAB (Bettmerhorn)).

We also have a page on Bettmerhorn and how to get there here.

Does that make sense? I hope I am understanding your question properly!

Thanks you Lucas!

I should enter 'Bettmergrat' instead of Bettmerhorn.
