The Tschingelhorn is a

two summited peak rising from the Petersgrat at the head of the Lauterbrunnen Valley. The

eastern summit is the highest. Though it is an attractive peak in its own right, it is

overshadowed by its larger neighbor to the east, the Lauterbrunnen Breithorn (3785 m). A

traverse of the two summits from the northeast to the southwest is included in

"Berner Oberland Die 100 Schoensten Touren" (Berner Oberland, the 100 Finest

Routes) by Hans Grossen with Gaston Rebuffat.
