What a beautiful drive it was along the valley road to Engelberg.

We came to Engelberg to catch the Gondola to Mt. Titlis.....
BUT,
we found more at Engelberg than just the Mountain!

You see, the village has an imposing monastery and collegiate church.

It is also a working Monastery, with about 30 monks living and working here today.

Mt. Titlis is known as the highest glacier excursion destination and biggest ski and snowboard paradise in Central Switzerland.

We went up to 3020 metres above sea level in three different Gondola's,
enjoying marvellous views on the way up and down, plus more at the top of
the Mountain.

This is a beautiful area, and a little cheaper than some of the nearby Mountain's.

On a sunny, clear day, it couldn't be beaten!

THANK-YOU VT for making my Tip's on MT. TITLIS

    Fantastic mountain scenery! And you were blessed with such good weather. I would love to do that gondola ride up the mountain!

    Oh wow... I miss the mountains and the green and the blue skies... Fantastic views and landscapes. Interesting thing, this last gondola with moving floor. And the monastery is beautiful indeed!

    Such beautiful photos! I think a rotating gondola would scare me but it also sounds kind of cool.
