Hi Gavin -
<<"I figured luggage transfer would be a popular option for many people
therefore business offering such services. plan is to complete walk on
21st June. we do a fair bit of hiking here in Scotland albeit not as
It is so common to use the railway network for luggage transfer that that I did not consider such a possibility.
Unless someone else has information, I guess I 'd resort to a search on the Internet.
At worst, you could probably hire a taxi to take the bags to your hotel.
That date might be questionable.
I'll solicit opinions form people have been hiking up there more recently. Arno? Annika? Marki?
Don't forget that the region had a lot of snow this past Winter.
That altitude is high ebnough to require a couple of days of getting used to it, or I have to stop frequently to catch my breath. Un acclimated, the short climb in the attached image causes me to pause and pant.Not likely to be a problem for younger, more fit hikers, I suspect.
For me , that starts with climbs beginning at about 2000 meters, such as the attached. The Luftseilbahn station at Männlichen is at 2229 meters. Männlichen Gipfel ( summit) is at 2343 meters.
Once you get up there, you can see the length of the eastern portion of the Jungfrau Massif, as in the attached.
