  • Peak of the Mönch (Mönch, 4099 m) lies between the mountains of the Eiger and Jungfrau mountains, forming with them the magnificent trio. This mountain is perfectly visible both from the Kleine Scheidegg and Jungfraujoch pass saddle. Through the North wall of the Mjonha broken Jungfraubannen railway tunnel, leading to one of the most spectacular panoramic sites of the Bernese Oberland. Moench is popular with climbers-its top leads a few relatively simple routes, the most popular of which starts from a mountain shelter Mjonhjohhjutte (Mönchsjochhütte). The best way to admire the Mjonhom can either be from the region of Ajgergletcher station, or from the plateau on the Jungfraujoch. Summary: one of the most beautiful peaks of the Bernese Alps.

  • The views spectacular. Climbing it by train is expensive... but I would repeat without hesitation! What if... is that we are left wanting to do night in the shelter of the Mönch.

  • The Monch. He is li, majestic, to admire and photograph several times once at the top of the Jungfrau. Especially from the terrace of the Sphinx.
