Four Lakes Hike in Engelberg (Vier-Seen-Wanderung)
The hike we propose is a linear route that starts from the Trübsee, the intermediate station of the cable car that leads up the Titlis. This is a moderately difficult hike with a discrete incline, but it is really also very flexible because all the main uphill or downhill sections are easily avoided via chairlifts, which makes the route much easier and enjoyable even for those who are less fit. The total route is about 14.5 km, which can be covered in just under five hours. Alternatively, you can reach the Jochpass aboard the chairlift from Trübsee and start your hike from there. This way, the total route is less than 12 kilometers and will require about three and a half hours of walking. On the way, you will enjoy beautiful views of the Titlis Glacier, the mountains in the area and 4 fantastic alpine lakes, each with its own characteristics and a distinctive water color. You will also find several dining options at mountain restaurants, several picnic areas with grills for a picnic, and a couple of cheese dairies where you can buy cheese, yogurt, and milkshakes.
