Synopsis

The Alpine Pass Route traverses Switzerland from east to west - from the ancient town of Sargans on the borders of Leichtenstein, to Montreux on the shores of Lake Geneva. It covers some 325 kilometres of mountain and valley, and crosses 16 passes with an accumulation of almost 18,000 metres of height gain in 15 stages. Each pass is different: from the remote slender crest of the Richetli to the broad tourist-thronged Kleine Scheidegg or the rocky crest of the Bunderchrinde and the grassy saddle of the Blattipass with its incredible views of the Oberland giants. Snow-capped peaks accompany the walker - the Todi and the Titlis; the Wetterhorn, Eiger and Jungfrau; the Kandersteg peaks; Wildstrubel, Wildhorn and Diablerets. Accommodation is plentiful. The route can be done as one long hard walk, or split into two easier holidays. There are many options - cable-cars; chair-lifts and funiculars can be used in many places. It is a route to suit all walkers.
