On the Junghfraujoch train about to head right through the Eiger
A view point along the way to the Junghfraujoch station
The Jungfraujoch (jungfrau col) station. Hard to believe this train travels through the Eiger and pops out at 3571m in the col between the Jungfrau and the Monch. Really an amazing work of construction particully since it was built almost 100 years ago in 1912.
Up in the station your not sure if you have just been tele-ported to India as suddenly the population is probably 90% from India. There even is a "Bollywood" Indian restaurant. This here is the "ice cave" one of the many authentic points of interest in the station.
Crossing the glacier to the Monchsjochhutte (monch col hut) you would be expecting to encounter such obsticals as crevasses, route finding, ect But on this trip you mearly follow the cat track around the crevasses but you still do have to look out for small japanese girls wanting to take pictures with you.
