Mount Titlis – summit shot

This photograph of Mount Titlis was taken almost at the top of Mount Titlis, the 3,238 metre (10,623 ft) high peak north of the Susten Pass in Central Switzerland. These are the Uri Alps, and the cable car up from Engelberg is famous as it has the world’s first revolving gondola. The top station offers shops and restaurants, and it gives access to an illuminated “Glacier Cave”, the “Cliff Walk” (the highest suspension foot-bridge in Europe with a 500 metre drop below!); the Ice Grotto underground; and the “Ice Flyer”, (a chairlift that goes right out over the glacier so that you can look down into crevasses). For the slightly less adventurous there is the Glacier Park, Titlis, where you can play in the snow and try ‘snowtubing’, a slide which the advert describes as “bumpy and exhilarating”!
Mount Titlis is one of the highest summits in Switzerland, and you can visit it on day tours from Lucerne (1 hour by train to Engelberg) or travel by coach from Zurich (1 hour 30 minutes). You can even hire a private guide and then the trip is customized to your particular wishes: the guide knows the way and can point out to you what you are looking at in that stunning view from above.
Good luck finding the changes between the photos!
