Mount Titlis: The Scintillating Swiss Snow Realm

From blockbusters to reality, this ride was one of the most spectacular, I had experienced until today. As we leisurely drifted over lush green Swiss pastures and by the snow-capped mountain peaks, I unobtrusively found myself enchanted with the fleeting scenes. Subsequently, I arrived at Mount Titlis Station after experiencing an hour-long picturesque Rotair-Ride from Engelberg. Titlis is a tiny station starring a conspicuous terrace with stunning views. What makes this station special is that it belongs to the Urner Alps of Switzerland – the first range to introduce cable car rides 10,000 ft above sea level. Mount Titlis is positioned at the highest summit between Central Switzerland and Engelberg, revealing the choicest alpine charm. Being an Indian, I could not contain my joy when I noticed the SRK and Kajol’s cut out from the Bollywood blockbuster DDLJ, parked at the venue’s entrance. This cut out marks the interminable success of the movie.

Switzerland Mount Titlis

I was at Mount Titlis for three hours. The first hour was spent sitting on the elongated bench, appreciating the creation of glorious snow mountains. It’s here that I found out that Mount Titlis is also referred to as Wendenstock or Nollen. These names, however, are inspired by the neighbouring peaks that stand a tad taller than the Titlis. The original name of this place comes after a local farmer Tutilos from the 14th-century. That changed to Tuttelsberg, then to Titlisberg, and then to Titlis. Next hour was spent drinking coffee, photography, video call with my family and taking important notes about the location.

The third hour was mostly spent observing people while succumbing to the chilled atmosphere amidst glacier peaks. In the 17th-century, Mount Titlis was first climbed. Although it wasn’t until the early 19th-century that the cable cars were introduced. The first cable car ran from Klein to Titlis, thereafter the Swiss government extended the tracks to nearby sites.

In 2012, Swiss authorities launched the Titlis Cliff Walk for public viewing. This Cliff Walk is Europe’s most eminent elevation suspension bridge. This entire site is girdled, by snow summits with unmatchable views of the ice slathered glaciers. I also visited the cool glacier cave starring amazing ice art. Tapping sightseeing opportunities around Titlis was one of the most exciting parts of this trip. Manoeuvre via Titlis Scooter, Trott Bike, or a Mountain Bike and hike the flower trails on foot. Don’t forget to enjoy the traditional Swiss cheese or chocolate fondue before you leave.
