Day 2: Jungfraujoch- Äbeniflue -3,962 Meters Map

Program: 'After an invigorating breakfast, the group will embark on the ascent over the Äbeniflue Firn to the summit of the Äbeniflue. Around two hours later, you can enjoy the stunning panoramic view from the top of the Äbeniflue at 3,962 meters. After a well-earned rest on the summit, we will start the unique and endlessly long run back down to the Fafleralp at the very back of the Lötschental valley. A fitting reward for your efforts. (Distance: 5 km. Hiking time: 2.5 hours; Ascent: 750 vertical meters).' (https://www.mammutalpineschool.com/en/skihochtour-jungfraujoch-aebeniflue-3962-m/?cache-refresh=1).
