It takes a while to walk to the lake but it is worth it. Pack a lunch and beverage and eat on the shore of the lake. Pack a light jacket in case in rains.

Views from here are absolutely fantastic. It's certainly worth the trek here. It takes around 50 minutes to reach here from the First cliff walk. There are two lakes here and the water is crystal...

Breathtaking. Definitely worth the one hour walk.
If you are taking the hike or the cable car to Grindelwald First, make sure you take sometime to reach this lake as well. By far the best location for some amazing reflection photography of the swiss alps at a distance. Loved the short hike from First to this lake.
