Rheinefall… We had to take a detour of around 40 kms. from the main road to visit this place. But it was worth it. There were not many visitors there. So the whole place was ours. It was a most sublime place to be. Surely one of the most beautiful places in the entire world. So picturesque… so tranquil. And I will remember the quiet walk I had around this place for a long, long time to come. It was an experience equal to what Wordsworth had when he came across the daffodils. The effect was the same as his:“A poet could not but be gay,In such a jocund company:I gazed – and gazed – but little thoughtWhat wealth the show to me had brought:For oft, when on my couch I lieIn vacant or in pensive mood,They flash upon that inward eyeWhich is the bliss of solitude;And then my heart with pleasure fills,And dances with the daffodils”…Only difference between us two is that he had no camera with him. Poor guy!?
I liked this spot very much. We sat here for sometime taking in the beauty, the silence. Yes! The visit to this place put me in a state of bliss, undoubtedly.
We boarded at a small place called Engelberg. I took off on an early morning walk out there and I liked the place for its beauty. The Alps, covered in snow, stood as a picturesque background to this place. This stream, probably a result of snow melt, gurgles through this place silently. I stood in this spot for quite sometime drinking in the fresh air, the landscape and listening to the merry song of the laughing waters
What a tranquil place Engelberg is really! May be I was out on the streets earlier than others. For there was not a soul out there. But this certainly added something to the experience. I admired the clean, I should say, squeaky clean roads, the uniquely designed houses, and of course, the impressive Alps in the background.
Loved the placing of the windows in these houses.
