I'm a wanderer, not a hiker. I stroll not walk, taking in the views and photographing the flowers. So anything not easy is not for me. The circular route round the oeschinensee is ok by me. But if your not prepared for it don't try the walk down to Kandersteg from Oeschinensee. It's short, but steep and really hurts your calves. I found myself walking from side to side of the road to take some of the steepness out of the road.
it's also nice up at sunnbuel with small glacial lakes amongst the trees to the right of the path to Gemmi. Also great views into the Gasterntal from the top station. The walk all the way to Gemmi will take about 3hrs, and then you have to get back either by retracing your steps or down to Leukerbad and back by bus & train and I don't know how practical that is.
