He did not think that the afternoon could be so difficult for him with a hike, but he became disoriented after reaching the top of some peaks that surround the picturesque hidden town that is not accessible by car. When he wanted to get back on track to return to his lodging, he no longer knew how to solve the problem. Time began to pass too quickly and the tourist went into a state of despair.

The hostel he was staying at was in the city of Lauterbrunnen, but the walk had unwittingly brought him to this remote point: “It was the end of the ski season when I arrived in Lauterbrunnen, so the cable cars were not working. and some trails were closed, “he explained.

“So I thought about going for a walk in nature and followed a roundabout path up the mountain. Then I followed those farther ski lifts, until I reached the top, where I decided to follow a train track in the middle of a practically empty city called Gimmelwald “.

A hidden paradise

It only has 130 inhabitants and is a paradisiacal destination, free of traffic, since you can only get there on foot. It is located on the edge of the Jungfrau-Aletsch Protected Area in the Swiss Alps. Mountains, snow, blue sky and a lot of green, but at that moment for the tourist it was a cell that had him locked up and threatened his life. Until a black and white cat appeared.

At that moment when tiredness and fear became stronger and stronger, the feline was presented as a kind of super hero. “That’s how I met that handsome cat, who found me while I was eating a snack and resting my sprained ankle.”

As if it were a help sent by someone, the cat beckoned him to follow him: “As soon as I got up, he began to guide me down a path.” I do not doubt it. As he could, despite the pain in his foot, he continued along the path that the animal indicated: “He kept looking at me to follow him and led me directly to the path that would take me back to the valley.”

“After following the animal for a while, we reached the path that would take me directly back from the mountain to the valley,” completed the man, who on Reddit keeps his identity hidden and calls himself by the incognito username: ” sc4s2cg “.

A hero of many battles

Referring to the destination, he noted that “Gimmelwald is a tiny, tiny and incredibly beautiful town” and that it was the beauty of the place that led him to get lost in the surrounding mountains.

After posting the story and photos and videos of the animal, other tourists who had visited the region claimed to have seen the animal and had similar experiences. The photos of the lost travelers with the friendly cat multiplied.

And so it became known that the cat was owned by a couple who ran a nearby shelter and regularly joined travelers on their trips up the mountainside.
