Jugfrau Adventure: Day 1

Summer break 2019 is coming but we have yet to finalize our vacation plan... initial plan was to visit either German or Italy. However, as we still can't use our personal car due to registration issue, we decided to focus on exploring Switzerland.  There are so many places we have not explored yet here.  One of the place is Interlaken, Off course, we have been before, but we really haven't explore it extensively.  There are so many attractions surrounding Interlaken and yet we only visited some places and limit ourselves with travelling with car.

This time, we decided to spend four days in Interlaken and the surrounding Jungfrau region. Instead of driving around this region, we decided to take the train.  You can refer to this website for info on the travel pass within Jungfau region.( https://jungfrauregion.swiss/en/summer/ ). You can buy either 3-day, 5-day and 8-day pass , and have access to most type of train; local train, mountain train, bus etc. However, for private cable car and train operators such as First, Pfingstedd or the Jungfraubahn are covered.  As for Jungraubahn, you buy special extension ride via the website at discounted price. Also, you can have special discount on selected cable cars and trains using the camping cards/hotel cards provided by your hotels/camping areas.

Talking camping area,this time, we decided to stay at a camping area instead of the normal hotel (p/s: hotel in summer here is quite pricey due to high demand).  We booked a cabin for 6 people at a camping ground called Manor Farm 5 which is located at Unterseen and just about 10 minutes bus ride from Interlaken town.  The best thing is that it is located in front of the Thunersee and have about 3 public beaches! At this camping ground, there are many operators managing different types of accommodation be it tent, caravan or cabin.  We chose a cabin managed by Altogold Swiss Holidays which is owned by two lovely and friendly British couple.

On our first day here, we just explore Unterseen and Interlaken as we arrived a bit late from Geneve. What amazed us here is the color of the water at Thunersee and the river Arve that surrounding Interlaken town.  It was mesmerizing and beautiful in its own way due to the glacier melt.  Whitish as milk and bluish at the same time... when we touched the water, it felt a little bit oily due to its highly mineral content.

Ingin mengembara ke Switzerland?

Pemandangan Switzerland dari langit Switzerland memang menjadi idaman mereka yang kaki melancong. Cantik dengan gunung-ganang dan tasik-tasik. Switzerland bukan sahaja popular dengan cokelat dan keju, tetapi Switzerland juga menjadi lokasi penggambaran filem-filem hebat antarabangsa -- Sangam; The Sound of Music; James Bond; Diwale; Crash Landing on You; video clip lagu " Jackpot " oleh Bastian Baker dannnn banyak lagi!! Saya hanya mampu berkongsi dengan rakan-rakan agar sedikit sebanyak dapat memberi gambaran  mengenai bumi Switzerland. Jauh sekali coretan saya yang hanya beberapa ribu perkataan ini dapat menandingi pengalaman anda sendiri di sana. Saya hanya dapat membantu memberi panduan dengan menulis. Pengalaman anda sendiri di Switzerland jauh lebih berharga. Jom! Saya banyak menerima pertanyaan dari rakan-rakan mengenai Switzerland. Terutamanya rakan-rakan di Malaysia. Antara soalan yang popular: (1) Apakah tempat menarik yang harus saya lawati di Switzer

Tasik-tasik best di Switzerland

Tasik Geneva (c)rashidisaid Switzerland memang mempesonakan disebabkan pemandangan yang penuh dengan pergunungan.  Jika sebelum ini saya dah kongsi tentang gunung-ganang Switzerland, kali ini nak kongsi dengan korang tentang tasik pula. Seperti juga gunung, Switzerland tidak bermakna tanpa tasik. Tasik adalah sumber air utama populasi Switzerland disebabkan Switzerland adalah negara daratan (landlocked) tidak mempunyai laut. Sebab itu rakyat Switzerland sangat-sangat memelihara tasik diorang dari tercemar. Nak nampak sampah terapung dalam tasik pun susah. Switzerland memiliki kira-kira 7,000 buah tasik yang mana 103 darinya adalah tasik bersaiz besar . Ini antara tasik yang best yang korang boleh melawat, santai, duduk, baring, lelap, makan, berkelah, ambil selfie dan wefie, mandi, berjemur, menaiki bot dan sebagainya. Memang indah dengan pemandangan pelbagai tasik yang menakjubkan. Tasik Geneva atau Lac Léman dalam Bahasa Perancis Tasik Geneva sepanjang 100km (c)ras

10 gunung di Switzerland yang best!

Creux du Van. (c) rashidisaid Jika setiap hari mendaki sebuah gunung di Switzerland, tempoh setahun masih belum mencukupi untuk menakluki semua gunung di Switzerland. Mungkin 2 tahun atau lebih. Begitulah gambaran bilangan gunung di Switzerland. Terdapat kira-kira 450 buah gunung di seluruh Switzerland yang terletak di sebelah kiri Banjaran Jura dan di sebelah kanan Banjaran Alps. 450 gunung ini mencakupi kira-kira 2/3 bentuk muka bumi Switzerland. Di tengah-tengah pula terbentang luas bukit-bukau Switzerland. Itu belum masuk lagi kira-kira 7,000 buah tasik (103 darinya adalah tasik bersaiz besar). Nanti kita cerita tentang tasik dan gunung ini. Bagaimana gunung dan tasik ini menjadi daya tarikan pelancong dari seluruh dunia untuk aktiviti-aktiviti seperti mendaki, "jungle trekking", berbasikal (gunung dan jalanan), mengembara dengan motosikal, aktiviti ski dan lain-lain. Banjaran ini dikongsi oleh 8 buah negara Eropah: Perancis, Monaco, Switzerland, Itali, Liechtenstein,
