CH29: Eiger North Face

The train station at Kleine Scheidegg is on the right, as I stand. Seen below is the north face of the Eiger.

Stunning vistas Ayush! What really grabs my eye is the reflection of the clouds in the house in the little pond. Excellent captures. smile
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Frances, I was going for the reflections

Seems an odd place to sight a wigwam, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: I cannot really recall why it was there, but that side was right next to the platform. You can make out a train too
The first shot is fantastic with that reflection.
I like that second shot as well with that map included.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Michael
i like the way that you captured the mountain reflected on the lake Ayush... and your second image of the north face and the sign is very dramatic....petersmile
Ayush Basu: I wanted viewers to be able to visualize climbers actually on the mountain face along the route. Thank you Peter
WOW! That's just incredible! It's like everything you always dream it will be!
Ayush Basu: Yes, except if I were to attempt that route, it would be a nightmare tongue

Ah the fearsome Eiger, with its even fearsomer North face. I was in awe at that name as a child Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Its insane that's what it is Chad. In my opinion people who climb this face, have a segment missing in their brains, the segment that process logical and rational decisions! grin
Great picture Ayush....what's with the wigwam??
Ayush Basu: Beats me Bill. It seems to be very close to the platform and you can make out the train behind it.
my gossh Ayush! did you finally open a bank account there?
Ayush Basu: I will tell you at the end of the series Juan Carlos grin

The small pond adds a lot to this shot with it's reflections. Very nice all around.
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the compliment Mary
Such majestic landscape, Ayush. Talk about having your head in the clouds. The wigwam has aroused my curiosity also.
Ayush Basu: I confess I am not sure about its origin or purpose. It seems to be very close to the platform and you can make out the train behind it.
A place I would love to see,Ayush,I have read so much about it.
Ayush Basu: Then perhaps you'll make a trip there after the US one smile?
I'm almost speechless Ayush, what magnificent scenery.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much for the kind compliment Brian, my task was simplified actually

A delightful scene. Like the reflection you caught in the water.
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Jennie
Very nicely framed with the reflections Ayush!

Wow - that makes me feel very small indeed, Ayush
Ayush Basu: We all are right there with you Lisl smile Thank you very much for the comment
I saw this monster.
Unfortunately the day was overcast and cold.
Your pictures and weather are perfect.
Greetings.
Lucia
Ayush Basu: Yes the clouds can be very fluid in these situations. Thank you very much Lucia
WoW that's quite a view Ayush
Ayush Basu: Thank you for that response Sally smile

I can't wait for when we start the ascent up the North face Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Haha good one Chad! grin

The mountains are just spectacular. Just the place to have a beer and breathe mountain air.
Ayush Basu: You are very correct Louis, it doesnt get much better than this.

I like the refection of the mountains in the pond but even better in the little cafe. I've climbed the Eiger... albeit in a train inside the mountain!
Ayush Basu: Thank you very much Alan. Then perhaps you could share some of your own shots as well, someday?
What a great shot of this classic mountain face. The epitome of the Alps, Ayush. It's stunning.
Ayush Basu: Very well put! Thank you very much Pauline

A great pace for mountaineers and a wonderful place for hikers, like you.
Wonderful picture.
Ayush Basu: Not enough words to describe the majesty of this place Astrid. I must confess the skills required for this route as outlined in the map are most emphatically beyond my reach tongue

Un lieu légendaire !
