Route:Kriens - Himmelrich - Fräkmüntegg - Oberlauelen - Chlimsenhorn - Pilatus
Access to start point:Starting point is Kriens - it is easily accessible both by public transportation and by car.
Access to end point:End point is Kriens again - you can either hike down or take the cable car.
Accommodation:There are 2 hotels just below the peak - they offer a good opportunity to see the sun set and rise.

A great hike -- the latter half is more interesting than the first half, so if you don't want to do the entire tour, it may be advisable to take the cablecar to Fräkmüntegg and start there. It is advisable to bring water - the last access to drinking water on the way is a river shortly after Oberlauelen, before the big ascent starts.
