We are on top of the world!
What a way for us to end this journey! This week we spent a day on Mount Pilatus and we were feeling just incredible.
Basically, we went up one side of the mountain and came down the other. To get up to the top we had to take two different cable cars. We came down by cogwheel. On the Pilatus website, it explains that the cogwheel “has a gradient of 48 percent, which is the steepest cogwheel railway in the world”.
Here’s a few photos of our day and a little video we made while we were up there.
It was a slow climb up in the first cable car. It was so cool going up, you could hear the ringing of the cowbells in the meadows below.
We are basically going way up there, somewhere in those clouds.
We eventually MADE IT! 👍
It was just CRAZY BEAUTIFUL!
Snow! We haven’t seen any of that white stuff this winter. 😊

Here below, I caught a shot of a cogwheel going down.
Coming down was just as beautiful!
Here’s a second cogwheel following us. This was a cool ride down.
Here’s a little video we took while we were at the peak. It’s hard to see the beauty but hope you’ll capture our excitement at least.
After this amazing day it was back to Lucerne, a city we will have a hard time leaving. Stayed tuned, we will be posting something on Lucerne before we leave.
