A beautiful alpine lake situated close to Kandersteg. The bowl shaped lake Oeschinensee is surrounded by the spectacular walls of the Blümlisalp (3657 m) and Doldenhorn (3638 m) to the south and east ends of the lake. The lake area itself is a mixture of mildly exposed alpine meadows and the Oeschiwald forest. The path up to this area climbs along the small valley of the Oeschibach stream. The area can also be reached by the gondola. There are three restaurants and one hotel in the area. Next to the top gondola station is the Summer Sled Run.
This hike is possible between late April and early November.
The cost of a single ticket for the Oeschinen Gondola is SFr. 13.60 for adults and SFr. 6.80 for children.
