Mount Titlis, Lucerne
Going up/down the Mt. Titlis via the cable car, you can enjoy magnificent views of the mountains and villages. Thus, you can take a picture from there. In autumn, the view is also a contrast of what is up the Mt. Titlis (below is full of greenery, up is full of snow).
It is the first Alps I had been to ...COOL. The best thing is that I went up in summer and there was still a snow storm. You can take the gondola up and then take the Ice Flyer to the top. There you can take a rubber tube to slide down 100m. You can skii there too. I didnt try it because a storm was brewing and I could see nothing but white. The reason is....I had not brought along my sunglasses and didnt want to be lost and not found. It is best to go with a tour group especially if you want to go all the way up to the top as it will be cheaper. You can find information at any tour agency in Lucern.
When you go a station lower you can walk very nice. It's mountain climbing! But take care! There is a leg where you can walk around. But when you go in the spring like I did the snow did not melt down totally. So look out where you walk!
This mountain is 3020 meter high! Here you can go skiing any time you want. During winter AND summer!
Outside of skiing it is a very nice place to be. You have a great vieuw. The 'gondellift' brings you up there. You can get out at three stations. At the highest place to get out there is a nice restaurant. There also is a icecave where you can go in.
This is a picture of me & my friends on Mt. Titlis. We weren't out there very long, but the reflection of the sun on the snow gave us quite a sunburn.
Mt. Titlis is the highest peak in Central Switzerland. I believe it's actually in Engleburg. We decided to take the long way to get there. We started out on a ferry.
Go to Mt Titlis and chill out! On our way to the top of the mountain, I managed to take a picture of this scene from inside the cable car.
A revolving cable car takes you up 10,000 feet to the top of this mountain, where you can also walk inside a glacier. The restaurant up there is very good, too.
Behind me they are skiing! As you can see, it was summer. Up there it still was not very cold. But maybe it was better to wear a sweater!
MOUNT TITLIS summit......... My first..and a great feeling. I'll try Mt Pilatus the next time round.
