After spending a bit of time on the north side of the Thunersee, we moved south under the peaks of Eiger, Mönch and Jungfrau. Most of the international tourists who are not in Interlaken, settle in at Lauterbrunnen. We passed Lauterbrunnen and kept driving deeper into the valley with waterfalls plummeting down from the steep stone faces in intervals that could not have been more than a kilometer from one another. We arrived at our campground in Stechelberg. From the license plates, we gathered that we were camping with the locals, many from Switzerland and a few others from Germany and also the Netherlands. For our first hike here, we planned to go to Kilchbalm through the Sefinental. According to our guidebook, we would start from Gimmelwald at 1400 meters. The recommendation was to take the lift up and then hike back, but we opted to simply hike both there and back. The two hour ascent we spent reaching Gimmelwald through the forest trails and grassy mountainsides was well worth it!
