... banks and walls made of huge rocks and/or heavy metal poles. Went straight to the guesthouse which was lucky as they were about to close for a few hours break. Had a lunch and headed into town for a look around. Not a lot to see as it really is not a tourist town, so headed back for a rest. Did 17km today but a lovely walk along the valley.

Once we reached the “middle” station, Cheryl and I had 15 minute hike straight up to Eishohle to see the caves. Fortunately, the hike involved a series of back and forth switchbacks making it a little easier, however, in the thinner air it was a pretty rough hike up. However, with the beautiful clear blue sky, the hike was absolutely spectacular. And the ...
