Alpine summit tour from Suldtal to Morgenberghorn: This more demanding route rewards you with breathtaking views of the lakes and the Bernese Alps.

Experienced mountain hikers will be in their element on this hike. The route begins with a highlight: the Pochtenfall waterfall, after which the trail climbs steeply up to the Renggli Pass. You can catch your breath in the magnificent flower-filled meadows once you reach the Renggli-Alp.  Take the opportunity to recharge your batteries, as the ascent to the Morgenberghorn is a strenuous one, but the effort is rewarded by the breathtaking panorama at the top: The panorama extends from the impressive 4,000-metre peaks of the Bernese Alps and across the flat Central Plateau to the Jura. The deep-blue waters of Lake Thun glisten far below in the valley.

Such a compelling view is hard to turn away from, but the descent demands total concentration, the path to Brunni is steep and includes two chained paths. The trail then leads back to the Pochtenfall restaurant via Brunni and the back of the Leimerwald forest.
