Swiss Alps Seen above Mount Pilatus

Central Europe 2nd part; 2-days solo backpacking in Switzerland
October 14 to October 16, 2013


Mount Pilatus elevation is 2,128 meters and has an excellent summit viewing deck to sightsee the majestic Swiss Alps. I went to this mountain via Silver class trip Lucerne – Alpnachstad – Pilatus Kulm – Kriens – Lucerne (train) for 76.4 chf ($84.4) with travel hours 0900H-1600H.

In discovering the Pilatus Kulm, there are 7 places to explore. Esel which is the 6,953ft summit part, Hotel Bellevue which has wide window for sightseeing, Hotel Pilatus-Kulm which is just beside Hotel Bellevue, Dragonpath which is route underneath the summits, Chriesiloch which is the end of Dragonpath, Oberhaupt which is the 6,913ft summit and Tomlishorn which is the highest peak at 7,000ft. 

Whether you take the world's steepest cogwheel railway from Alpnachstad or the panorama gondolas and aerial cableway from Kriens, the Pilatus offers a unique alpine experience! Climb aboard and enjoy magnificent panoramic views: the panorama gondolas  takes around 30 minutes to travel from Kriens – via the Krienseregg – to the Fräkmüntegg summit terminus. The breathtaking mountainscape at the summit is awe-inspiring – experience, too, the unique alpine atmosphere. The best views at 2132 metres above sea level are a further five-minute cablecar ride away.
