So blessed for a trip to one of Kali's hometowns, by Lake Lucerne at the base of the Rigi mountain in Switzerland. Getting to spend time with her mother and her family here and be introduced to this truly special place has been the best way to start off the new year. Sending intentions into the wind for a better year to come for our planet and our world. @kaliparkin#MtRigi#LakeLucerne#Switzerland #2018 #nofilter
Seemingly endless moorlands, craggy karst formations and wild mountain streams make for special experiences and views. Switzerland's first biosphere reserve offers natural beauty at its finest. Almost no other region in Switzerland has as many natural treasures as the “Wild West” of Lucerne. Hardly any other region in Switzerland possesses as many natural treasures as does Lucerne's "Wild West". Switzerland's most extensive and numerous moorlands are found here as are a flora and fauna of (inter)national importance. It is no wonder that Entlebuch was designated by UNESCO as the first biosphere reserve in Switzerland. Within the worldwide network of biosphere reserves, Entlebuch represents pre-Alpine moorland and karst landscapes.
Over an area of 400 square kilometres a mystical world unfolds with its promise of peace, inspiration and relaxation - unspoilt moorlands, idyllic Alpine pastures and the majestically towering Schrattenfluh make for experiences of a very special kind indeed.
But it is not only peace and relaxation in unspoilt nature that the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch offers. It also boasts a wide range of leisure activities. There is an enormous choice including the energy and fairytale trails, Kneipp facilities, mud baths, satellite-guided hiking and field trips. Even from a historical and cultural point of view, the region has much to offer - the ancient craft of charcoal burning in Romoos and the pilgrimage site of Heiligkreuz are just highlights of a visit to the largest book in the world. #lakelucerne#switzerland #🇨🇭 #travel#hiking#vacation#destination#photography#landscape#mustvisit
What does Lucerne NOT have to offer? Beats us! @ilove_lucerne is and always will be a highlight: the #ChapelBridge, #LakeLucerne, the wonderful old town, mountains all around. Another of the city’s landmarks is the Jesuit church. Situated between the old town and the lake on the Reuss river, it is of great historical importance and was the first major sacred Baroque building to be built in Switzerland. Thanks for the great photo, @crossmaglen.
