The cold air embrace our bodies while standing at the mouth of the cave tunnel hallway ice. All parts of the walls and floor of the cave was sheer ice. Everything was white,ice, like being in the fridge. Brrr ..., text by sonya Hellen Sinombor, executive summary by darmansjah

That initial thrill of his Ice Palace Jungfraujoch, Switzerland. We had stopped for a moment watching a long corridor of ice that seemed no end in sight. While in the middle of the tunnel suddenly chest tightness. Being in the mountains with an altitude of around 3,000 meters above sea level may be our lack of oxygen.

We then slowly down the tunnel a height of about 2 meters, with a floor of about 1.5 meters wide. A few minutes at the end of the hall space ice looks like a rather large cave. On the walls there are a number of ice sculptures, ice sculptures one Sherlock Holmes, the detective character in the stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. From the cave, the journey continues through the ice again until the end of the tunnel in a door connecting to another tunnel. Well, (thankfully) this other tunnel is not a tunnel of ice time.

 Waw ...a relief. Although less than tenth minutes in the ice tunnel, strong sensation imprint. Moreover, when given information about the Ice Palace, which is said every year some part of the cave was moving about 15 centimeters.

One hundred years of pretty girls.
area of ​​1,000 square meters was opened in 1934. Ice palace down sensation when it is one part of the trip at the Jungfraujoch-Top of Europe, which is dedicated Jungfrau Railway, the company that manages the Swiss mountain tourism using a cog railway route Schedegg Kleine-Jungfraujoch station, for world travelers who come to Jungfraujoch.

Mid-September, in celebration of 100 years or a century opening of the Jungfrau Railway, a number of journalists from several countries were invited by the Jungfrau Railway and Switzerland Tourism, witnessed Junfraujoch and a number of other tourist destinations in Switzerland.

According to history, 100 years ago, precisely 1912, a construction worker from the Italian broke through part of the summit of Mount Junfrau about 700 meters from the summit of Mount Junfrau (4158 meters above sea level
). This place is right on the peak of Mount Monch (4107 masl). Named Jungfraujoch because this place is like beautiful young girls because since operated, this place became a tourist magnet the world.

" Top of Europe". The nickname is well-deserved given for tourism Jungfraujoch, Switzerland. This place is a tourist destination in the world who are on the mountain, which is reached by rail transport in about an hour from the Kleine Scheidegg station. The opening of the train line to the top of the mountain is a spectacular idea originated from Adolf Guyer-alhir from Zeller, Switzerland’s industrialman.

Amazing view looks from the snow-covered mountain. The sensation actually started when the train began to move left Keline Schedidegg, train station at an altitude of 1061 masl down the ramp. Open Station can be reached about 1 hour 15 minutes by train from Interlaken Ost station through Lauterbrunnen station.

If you come in the summer, sunny weather will color the way to the Jungfraujoch, as we feel. Still imagine how two carriages bearing brown Jungfraubahn slowly moving through the rail down the jagged mountains. At an altitude of 2320 meters above sea level, at the train station Eigergletscher pause.

The journey continues through the Eiger mountain belly and stopped Eigerwand at an altitude of 2865 masl. About five minutes, tourists were allowed down enjoying the view of the snow-covered cave just on the edge of the glass cliff of Mount Eiger.

From Eigerwand, continue traveling down the dark alleys penetrate the inside of the mountain and back Monch paused eismeer station. As in Eigerwand, here too there is a hole through the cliff cave. From behind the glass, we see the valley and the hills are covered in a hardened chunk of ice in various forms.

The journey continues through a dark tunnel. At approximately 12:30, the train stopped at the door of the cave into the gate that connects the station with a building built right on one of the cliffs of Mount Jungfrau.

In addition to a spacious walled glass, the building is equipped with an intentionally designed restaurant at the edge of a mountain cliff. That afternoon, with a group of pilgrims from the Sherlock Holmes Society of London, we enjoyed lunch at a restaurant on the Jungfraujoch.
After lunch, we were brought up using the lift to the highest point on the Jungfraujoch at an altitude of 3571 masl, a weather observation station towering buildings, with the top of the dome-shaped. The place is named Sphinx. A patio is built right into the side of a cliff overlooking the Jungfrau peak. Standing on the terrace is aware we are in the highest civilization of the world untouched. Moreover, the weather that day was really sunny. Eternal snow (Aletsch Glacier), which stretched across the mountains into the most amazing scenery.
From the Sphinx terrace, we were taken down into the ground, down a tunnel, called Alpine Sensation, new attractions on the Jungfraujoch, which was launched in early 2012. That afternoon, we were also very lucky because she had set foot in Glacier Plateau enjoying the ice surface in one of the mountain peaks while feel the grains of snow that fills the entire body.

We used the last chance to play in the snow at the Jungfraujoch with Sledge park. Eternal snow glide with rubber tires in the pouring snow into the most exciting recent sensation. Shivering, we headed to the train while enjoying a glass of warm chocolate bought from a cafe on the Jungfraujoch.

Facility at St. Beattus' Caves. We went here from Interlaken by boat, on the way to Grindelwald.
