I did a day hike here. The route and the glacier run side by side. Looking down on it was amazing. You could see how much it has decreased over time on the rock face at the far side.
Alstsch glacier can be seen from multiple points. Eggishorn provides beautiful panoramic views of the glacier. Easily accessible by lift from Fiesch. Worth a visit.
Deep in the heart of the Swiss Alps, the magnificent Aletch Glacier meanders in the valley. As glaciers are slowly receding, it is crucial to experience the glacier before it is too late. I stayed near Bettmeralp which is a short day hike to the glacier. The natural beauty is stunning. I went out on the glacier, which requires experience and gear(ice axe, crampons, ropes, etc.). Do not venture out on the glacier without proper knowledge, experience, or gear. There are ice caves, underground glacial streams, and steep drops throughout the glacier. It was an experience of a lifetime and I recommend everyone to witness the beauty that the Swiss Alps has to offer.
It's an awesome experience to come here, watching natural special scenery which is great and beautiful.
Unbelievable view.... Awesome... Beauty of Nature..
