SWISS WONDERS: ENGELBERG & MT. TITLIS!

Dear friends: From a busy and fun-filled tour of Italy, our bus proceeds to enter, what has been labeled by many as a paradise on earth, i.e. Switzerland! Its lofty, snow-covered peaks, its air and aroma, its vast geen valleys, and a pleasant and salubrious climate, all are bewitching. We are in Central Switzerland and in the late afternoon, reach the mountain resort of ENGELBERG. Engelberg attracts visitors both in summer as well as winter. In summer, it may become quite warm and humid, at its elevation of 1020 meters (over 3300 feet) above sea level. After a stroll through the friendly small town, an Indian-style delicious dinner, and a night's rest, we will be ready early morning to depart for a world-renowned spot, MOUNT TITLIS and Titlis Galcier, a "celestial" ski resort! We reach there by chair lifts,rotating cable cars and rotair cableway-gondola. The roomy and rotating gondola revolves around 360 degrees enabling the visitors to breathtaking views of the mountains and the glacier at a whopping elevation of 3200 meters (10,000 feet)! And then, up there are the "Ice Flyer" chair lifts for further spectacular views. There is also a passage through an ICE CAVE to explore!
Enjoy the scenery. Best wishes. JARIS
