Trip date 14-17 June, 2017. Interlaken, Switzerland is a small city between two lakes Brienz and Thung hence the name. It is popular destination during winter for winter sports and also famous for Bollywood industries as there are lot of movies' songs are shot here. I stayed in a hostel which over looks Jungfrau mountain. Swiss food is predominantly cheese related stuff so get lot of varieties here.

Sites to see are Jungrau mountain, Wengen, Grindelwad, boat rides across the lakes, hiking, caves, skiing during winter, paragliding, etc. I would rather suggest to stay in Wengen where you can live in mountains or Speiz by the side of the lake. Worth renting the cabin if you are coming with family.

Jungfrau is the top of the Europe. I would suggest not going to this mountain and spend so much money. Also this mountain means Mountain of a VIrgin. Apparently a monk lived long time ago and hence the name.

I spend one day hiking around the lakes and met this lady Tatiana. There is a small muesum in the caves which we did not go. The views from the hike is amazing as there is cable which will take up the hill for the better views. Met this girl who is a mix of Asian and Swiss, had a nice chat with her.

What I love about the place is the houses are far apart and huge. They are so well maintained barely I can see any dust in the air and the roads are pristine. It would be a dream to live in these places and I am sure these people are very strong physically because of the fresh water from the mountains carrying lot of minerals.
