From the train station, follow signs to the cable car which is about 10 - 15 mins by foot. 20 mins gondola ride takes you to the top of the mountain costing 26 chf for both ways but there are some concessions for swiss pass holders. Incredible views all-around, this ride is a treat to the eyes!
Once on top of the mountain, you can also enjoy the views of the valley down below. There are signs all along the forest path to the lake. There are narrow/ steep paths for an adventurous soul too.
It was my second time visiting the lake. I was naturally thrilled. BUT, trekking through the paths was a lil bit inconvenient and scary, coz both my feet were nearly frozen as I had worn non-compatible snow shoes. ???? Brrrr!! Unaware of the amount of snow on the mountains, wearing normal boots was not ideal yet all. I even tried filling my boots with few tissues to give me some warmth. But all in vain! The struggle was real but the gorgeous view all around kept me going.

After a hour of trekking, reached the lake. This time, the turquoise blue lake was completely frozen and covered with snow. The lake with mountainous surroundings is part of The UNESCO World Heritage site. Ice-skating & ice-fishing are popular activities in winter.
