Fründenhütte SAC 2562 m

Located a thousand metres directly above Oeschinensee, this cabin for experienced mountain hikers and high alpine mountaineers is surrounded by rock and ice. Fründengletscher, formerly flowing around the cabin, has receded so that its tongue has stopped right behind the cabin, leaving behind a charming landscape with small moraine lakes. The access trail has exposed passages. «Fründschnuer», a trail behind Oeschinensee, is a special attraction for sure-footed mountaineers unafraid of heights.
