IMG_4310We stayed Lucerne for two days. First day was we visited mount Titlis. We took train toย to Engelberg then walked down to the cable car.ย  Engelberg – Titlis cable car goes up to Titlis with a change at Trรผbsee. Fromย Trรผbsee the rotating gondolas “Titlis Rotor” took us to the top.


The weather was not great . It was cloudy that day so view from top was not very clear.ย The glacier cave is only a snowball’s throw from the mountain station. The glistening, blue ice tunnel leads deep down into the fascinating world inside the glacier.


Ice Flyer chair lift operates during summer months takes one to the glacier park .


Next day we left for mount Pilatus . We planned a round trip . We took a train to Alpnachstad, We then went up to mountain from Alpnachstad which is the world’s steepest cable car ride.

From the top we took cable car down to Frรคkmรผntegg and then again by gondola down to Kriens. There is a bus service from Kriens which took us back to Lucerne.


A dragon rock supposedly fell from the sky in the year 1420. The Roman governor Pontius Pilatus might have been buried in Lake Pilatus. Legend has it that a petrified man stands guard in front of a cave. The mountain massif of Pilatus, which towers above the region with its 2,132 meters in height, indubitably captures the imagination. Even today Pilatus is a source of mystical discoveries and is home to places of natural beauty that are steeped in legend and lore.
