Mount Titlis: Popular Destination Among Indians Visiting Switzerland

Talk about Mount Titlis in Switzerland, and if you’re a Bollywood fan, you can’t help but talk about Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge (DDLJ). The movie, starring Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol, was shot here, and you can see a giant cardboard cutout of the movie’s poster at the top of Mt. Titlis.

Located in central Switzerland (between the cantons of Obwalden and Berne), Mt. Titlis is one of the most popular destinations among Indian tourists visiting Switzerland.

It is mainly accessed from Engelberg (Obwalden) on the north side. The cable car system connects Engelberg to the summit of Klein Titlis through the three stages of Gerschnialp, Trübsee and Stand.

There’s a huge hoarding (for welcoming guests) just outside the cable car station. It says ‘Swagatam’ (Welcome) on one side and ‘Alvida’ (Bye) on the other side along with other languages.

Many take a train up to Engelberg, a picturesque village from where one can take a cable car to reach Mt. Titlis.

When you start the ascent in the cable car, you may not see the peak right away (due to the clouds), but few minutes later, when you’re above the clouds, you get a great view of Engelberg.
