Switzerland - Hike with UUSAC

On Sunday 29th of September 2019, Uppsala University Switzerland Alumni Chapter (UUSAC) invites us all to take part in the "5-Lake-Hike Pizol", said to be one of the most beautiful panoramic mountain hikes in Switzerland.

A classic hike with unequalled panorama - this is one of the bit less touristic “must-do” hikes in Switzerland. The hike starts and end with cable car allowing for a comfortable, silent hovering over the less exciting forest section. We will pass five crystal clear lakes each with its own colour. The hike is not very difficult, but will provide for some exercise, it will take about 4 hours to complete excluding stops.

Elevation: +660m, -1050m

Date: Sunday 29th September 

RSVP: uusac@alumni.uu.se no later than 22 September (exceptions can be made). Do bring family and friends.
