We joined local tour to come here. We took the cable car up to 3600m. The view is awesome. Spring season just right for us, weather is not so cold nor hot. Also the tourists are less than peak season. Visited on Mac 2018.

This is a great place to go if you have never been to an alpine type mountain range, just be forewarned about the altitude if you have never been this high up. Would recommend!

We spent more than 2 hours on waiting and queuing. Experience of sitting in the cable car is exciting . I think oxygen bottle is not necessary for me.

There were a lot of people and we had to wait in lines and take busses for most of our visit. it is also pretty pricey. We didn’t get the feeling of nature at all, the lakes are man made and it seems like their...More

Not sure if you can make online reservation. We bought the ticket there. You need jacket, wind-breaker, but snow boots not necessary as there are walking platform.
