>> Are most of the public means of transportation( trains, cable cars) operational??
Trains between cities, towns and villages operate all year. Closures only apply to mountain transport. Closures are either for 4-6 weeks of maintenance in autumn and spring, or for the whole winter in cases where the tracks or roads are not cleared of snow during the winter.
>> Are there any other alternatives to reach Wengen (other than cable cars) since we would probably be heading there on 22nd/23rd of Oct when the cable cars would be shut down..
You reach Wengen by train from Interlaken Ost. The train runs year round. The cable car in Wengen goes up to the Männlichen (a mountain) - you do not need to use it to get access to Wengen village.
>> also can you suggest me a few other picturesque landscapes/countrysides near Lauterbrunnen/Grindelwald which are worth a visit
