This particular image above fascinates me as it gives that feel, as if I were on an imaginary planet, maybe the Moon and this was a colony with Space Stations; a truly futuristic feel.

This so-called Space Station is actually a Communications & Weather tower atop Mt. Titlis which offers a panoramic view of its snowy surroundings. The mountain top offers a stunning view of the glaciers from the “Stotzig Egg – viewpoint”. Not to miss among the various attractions are the Glacier Cave, the photo studio and world’s highest watch showroom at the mountain peak.

One of the largest ski and snowboard destinations in Switzerland and a place for snow activities such as snow tubing, sledge at Titlis Glacier Park, this place is a summer and winter abode for tourists from worldover. The Titlis IceFlyer Chairlift is one of the major attractions, dropping tourists back and forth to the Titlis Glacier Park.

After an adventurous snow ride, I headed back to Engelberg to catch my next train to Lucerne. Although, the surprising aspect of this trip was the poster of Shah Rukh Khan (Indian actor) and Kajol (Indian actress) from Dilwale Dulhaniya Lejayenge movie put right at the entrance of Mt. Tiltis and even more amusing was to watch all the Indians posing happily right next to it (P.S. not me).
