Travel Views: The Top 25 Natural Wonders (Video)

Massive glaciers, staggering mountains, plains dotted with wild animals: We sure live in a big, beautiful world. And while pinpointing all of Mother Nature’s greatest hits could take a lifetime, we think these out-of-this-world landscapes and awe-inspiring wonders, from Arizona to Antarctica, need to move to the very top of your travel list.

Swiss Views: ‘Eiger Express’ Cable Car – Grindelwald


In this video, we present a spectacular panoramic journey experience of newly launched Eiger Express Cable Car, Grindelwald, Switzerland. It was launched in Dec. 2020. Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe station in the Swiss Alps is a highly popular day-trip excursion for travellers/tourists in Switzerland. The new Eiger Express cable car from Grindelwald Terminal shortens the journey to Jungfraujoch by around 47 minutes, although the final stretch to the top of the mountain remains by Jungfrau mountain train. The traditional trains-only route from Grindelwald and Lauterbrunnen is still available and may be combined with a cable car ride. The Eiger Express cable car operates between Grindelwald Terminal (937 m asl) and Eigergletscher station (2328 m asl), in the Swiss Alps near Interlaken. It uses tricable technology to transport up to 26 passengers per gondola. The cable car ride is 6,483 m long but remarkably needs only seven support pillars en route. As the system can transport up to 2,200 travelers per hour, this new faster route is likely to become the more popular way to reach the Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe mountain station.
