... we did this today and what a beautiful location to try it for the first time.
The only time I was a little concerned was early in the flight when Benny was mumbling "it's tangled, it's tangled". Not exactly what you want to hear when you're dangling from a paraglider in the sky! Eventually it became clear that the only thing that was tangled was the cord attached to the camera - not the strings attached to the chute (thank goodness!!)
Omg, so gorgeous ...
... fourth night tonight, maybe I'll get promoted to maybe the second row? Any way, there is no one here to argue this morning. Seems others are sleeping in because of the poor weather.
The local waiter reckons the weather is going to be bad all day. But knowing how changeable it can be in the mountains I take a chance and kit up for a very dramatic walk up the Unterer Grindelwald Glacier. This involves a cable car ride up ...
... not even to the top because we ran out of time), we got on our sleds at about 8,500 feet altitude and began the ride down the hill. The sled ride in total lasted 1 hour... That is 1 hour sledding down the hill, only stopping when I was about to crash or fall over the mountain.... I wish I could put into words how amazing, insane, crazy, and fun this "sled ride" was, but I honestly can't even begin to explain. Instead I will just let my pictures try and do it justice.. ...
... on the cliff on the other side. Cable cars run up to both Wengen and Murren and a mountain railway, the Wengenalp runs from the bottom, up to Wengen and then on up to Kleine Scheidegg on the higher plateau.
... we enjoyed a cup of our favourite tea, Masala Chai. It went down a treat after the hard slog up from Grindelwald! Then we took the 111m high lift that takes you up to the viewing platforms. This lift is the fastest in Switzerland - takes just 27 seconds to send you to paradise!!
