Photograph by Ad Astra-Aero FROM THE NIESEN A GLORIOUS PANORAMA OF THE BERNESE OBERLAND UNFOLDS The ascent may be made either by the straight cable railway or afoot by the narrow, zigzag road. Although the trip upisnot very interesting, the view from the summit more than repays one for the time and trouble. Especially fine is the prospect it affords of thegreat snow fields ofthe Bliimlisalp. Niesen is 7,762 feet high and not far from Spiez, on Lake Thun.
