Altdorf – Engelberg (via Surenenpass)

Brüsti (UR) - Surenenpass - Blacki - Engelberg

This was a hike I have been meaning to do for a long time, but I could never find the verve required to get up early enough. It's not only a pretty long hike (if you do the full length then it's ~20 km / 7-9 hrs), but because the pass is trenched by compact and inaccessable mountain massives (Brunnistock with Uri Rotstock to the North, Schlossberg and Spannörter with Glatt Firn to South) it is required to travel around entire Vierwaldstättersee and then from Engelberg back to Luzern. The reward was immense: I did not meet anybody all day and I was able to do some snow-climbing in the warm December sun.
