I'm going to Switzerland in late May and will be based in Interlaken. I wanted to see the Aletsch glacier from Eggishorn but unfortunately the cable cars will be closed in those dates and the trails are snowed in. I know I can see it from Jungfraujoch but I was wondering if there are any other impressive glaciers that I can visit in those dates? I don't mind hiking 10-15 KM.

Thank you.

Hi dsa88,

What about Glacier3000? Lucas just wrote a trip report about it which you can read here. You may also be interested to read this thread: www.myswissalps.com/fo rum/topic/how-to-travel-to-glacier-3000-from-interlaken.

That looks great, thank you!

I was also considering doing a hike to the Trift bridge to look at the Triftsee and Triftgletscher. Do you think this is doable in late May? The trail has a maximum altitude of 1738 meters.
