Switzerland & Chamonix 10 days- solo traveller

I am a solo traveler from India visiting Switzerland in the first week of Sep'19. Below is the plan that I'm looking to follow:
Day 1: Fly into Zurich in the night. Overnight at Zurich
Day 2: Overnight at Lucerne
Day 3, 4, 5, 6: Overnight at Wengen.
Activities planned in Bernese Oberland-
Day 1- Arrive in Wengen, Stroll around
Day 2- Cable car to Mannlichen, Hike to Klein Scheidegg, onwards to Grindelwald, First and back to Wengen via Lauterbrunnen
Day 3- Visit Murren, Hike to Gimmelwald, Cable car to Schilthorn. Back to Wengen
Day 4- Day trip to Thun, Spiez and Bern. Back to Wengen
I am skipping Jungfrau since it is too expensive and have read a few reviews more in favour of Schilthorn.
Will be taking a 4 day Bernese Oberland pass coupled with a half fare card.
Day 7- Take the Golden Pass Line to Gstaad (stroll around for an hour) and then onwards to Montreux. From Montreux, take a train to Vevey. Overnight at Vevey.
Day 8- Train to Megeve, France via Geneva. Overnight at Megeve.
Day 9- Visit Aiguille du midi. Is it better than Jungfrau? Overnight at Megeve.
Day 10- Day trip to Annecy. Overnight at Megeve.
Please advise on what other things can be done in Bernese Oberland, in case rain decides to ruin the trip :(
Also, please pour in your suggestions on the itinerary.

Unless you’re set on seeing Zurich, I’d take the train to Luzern upon arrival at ZRH, simply because 2 nights in one town beats 2 separate one nighters.
