The party will retrace its steps to the Jungfraujoch and enter the railway station - the highest in Europe at 3,454 m.

Aboard the train, the group will travel through a tunnel dug beneath the Mönch summit to the Eismeer station. On clear days, tourists press against the station windows, capturing photos of the spectacular glaciers and towering peaks.

Leaving the railway, the party will cross the Challiband, passing the Eiger caves, which served as a bivouac before the Bergli hut was built. The route takes them past the Fiescher and Eismeer glaciers to the Schreckhorn Hut, 1,500 metres below the Schreckhorn summit.

The Schreckhorn was considered "the last unconquered stronghold of the Oberland" by Sir Leslie Stephen, in his classic book, "The Playground of Europe". When Stephen became the first to reach the top in 1861, he sat down to "enjoy a pipe and the beauties of nature".
