Switzerland Trip – Day 3

On Day 3, the forecast for Jungfrau was very good and so, without wasting too much time, we ventured to go to Jungfrau. The ticket to the Jungfrau is not covered completely by the Swiss Pass – we had to pay 108 SF for each person for a round trip ticket. Anyway, the train ride was really spectacular – with great views of the Eiger and Jungfrau and the Alpine mountain ranges. Switzerland is indeed a picture-perfect country – the roads, the meadows, the homes, the flowers on the houses, the greenery, the mountains, the lakes, the “happy” people, the cows – everything just make this place a paradise. The train journey from Lauterbrunnen to Kline Schniedegg was probably the most amazing of them all – sit on the right hand side of the train for some great views and panaroma photos (thanks Rick Steve!).

Jungfrau is really an amazing place – the views of the Alps are just spectacular. It was both thrilling and chilling standing outside in the cold. We also took a walk along the glacier (wonderful), saw the Ice Palace (great), went outside to the plateau (great but really cold) and also had some Indian tea at the café – that was a really interesting experience.

After spending some quality time at the Jungfrau, we made our way back to Interlaken. Since we had to checkout on Thursday, we spent sometime in packing our suitcases before going out to dinner. We went to a Chinese restaurant (“Lucky Ming”) – the food was good and it was at a walk able distance from our hotel too.
