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.

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.
