Hi,

We plan to take the following hikes in Jungfrau region in Mid-June.

1. First-Bachalpsee

2. Mannlichen-Kleine Scheidegg

3. Hike in Lauterbrunnen Valley

Pl. suggest whether any special clothing will be required.

Thanks and regards,

hi,

No special clothes are needed for the walks you listed, apart from some good water resistant shoes or boots. Personally, I prefer boots because I need ankle support. You should have some decent wet weather gear such as a goretex jacket and over pants. If the sun is out, it can get a bit hot, so I usually wear shorts and a long sleeve shirt as well as a hat. The type of pants that have the zip-off legs are very useful. In my day pack I carry a fleece vest in case the weather turns cold and a folding umberella. I've experienced snow at Bachalpsee in July, so be prepared for changeble weather.

Hope this helps

Alan
