Land of Chocolates and Cheese

This time my visit was to the Switzerland. Well Switzerland is a small in size but, it has got some pretty good attractions lets say "Region Saas-Fee" its an amazing view from the top at an altitude of (5906 ft). The breathing taking views of the mountains are simply amazing one has to see to have such experience.

Switzerland is most famous for Alpine (Mountains) scenery. The mountains covered with snow the rays of sun falling on the snow and the breath taking view of the mountains are simply outstanding. The highest mountains in Switzerland are the Dufourspitze, which is 15,203 feet high, the Dom, which is 14,913 feet high and the Matterhorn, which rises to an altitude of 14,691 feet.
The combination of mountains, clear air and beautiful scenery make the Swiss Alps a unforgettable sight. Switzerland is a mixture of few cultures say (France, Italy and Germany). There are few festivals which the locals celebrate like Locarno Film festival, Monteux Jazz Festival; well the most important festival is the Christmas.
I couldn’t get to see all the castles, well I managed to take a look at few of them (New Castellum, Castle in Eglet, Castle in Gruier, Tourbillon Castle, Chillion Castle). New castle was built in 15th Century and Eglet castle was built in 13th Century and castle in Gruier was in 11th Century and Tourbillon was in 15th century and the final one that is Chillion castle was in 13th century... It took me quite a long time to check all the castles, but it is worth it.

One can say Switzerland is the country of chocolates, Cheese, and many more... well i have eaten a lot of those chocolates and take few back home. The consumption of Chocolate is through out the year but the peak season is the Autumn and from here the productions of chocolates is on top of the scale... when i had enough with the chocolates I went to the Alpine region where they make cheese traditional there are more than 400 verities of chesses. I get to taste few of the cheese. These hand made cheeses are shaped into flat round shapes and left to mature.

For Hikers I would recommend Stanserhorn the picturesque scenery, fresh air of alpine peaks and rare mountain flowers are delightful and provide a relaxing effect.

Well this was my trip to the amazing land of chocolate and cheese.
I have booked my room closer to the airports, so that there wouldn’t be any problem.
