It’s nearly time for us to say goodbye to Surbiton and 3rd Poynton Guides, it’s been a blast! The groups have been extremely busy these last few days in and around Adelboden, both spending Wednesday in the village bowling and enjoying the sun at the Panorama Pool (again!).
On Thursday we visited the spectacular Trümmelbach Falls – Europe’s largest subterranean water falls. The collection of 10 glacial falls drains the Eiger, the Mönch and the Jungfrau alone – that’s 20,000 litres of water per second (no wonder it was so noisy!).
Next, 3rd Poynton and Surbiton headed up (in cable cars) to the small car-less village of Mürren, which sits at the foot of the Schilthorn (1638 m above the Lauterbrunnen valley).
The girls all took some time to sit with an ice cream and appreciate the scenery, before heading back down to Lauterbrunnen.
The groups’ last day here has been more relaxed. Everyone headed to the Woodcarver’s via Cholerenschlucht Gorge, a 100m long rock gorge with an impressive waterfall!
Afterwards, the girls headed to the Woodcarver’s to collect their handmade woggles. It was then time to hike to Our Chalet in the beautiful sunny weather!
