Oeschinensee was the first Alpine World Heritage site admitted by UNESCO. You can either hike up to the lake from Kandersteg or take a cable car. Since we were at breakfast so long we decided to take the cable car up with hopes we would still get some blue sky before the clouds covered the top of the Alps. The lake didn’t disappoint. The water was a maginificant green color.

The lake is pretty low with water right now since they had snow last week. Most of the hikes around the area were closed due to snow so we weren’t able to hike too much up there. There were two guys taking the cable car up with some skis. Peter told me that they would hike to the top of the Alps and then ski down. I think they said it would take around 7 hours to hike up there and the trails were closed so it was their own risk.
