Lake Lauenen with a view towards Gelten

On the right-hand side there is a signpost with various signals in yellow and brown. The view goes into the valley and in the centre there are various dark wooden chalets or barns. The meadow on the right has hardly any flowers and is cut short. The meadow on the left is full of flowers. Towards the back of the valley rise the rocky mountains, where there is even snow on the shady slopes.
