Day 7: Exploring Switzerland, Checking out Schilthorn, Interlaken

Interlaken, Switzerland

Interlaken, Switzerland

As we got within 5 miles of our hotel, the road started becoming thinner and thinner. I was loving it as I like these kind of reads but not Aarti. Our Dhanno (our car) was taking it well when suddenly after few amazingly steep and sharp turns, we were going uphill a 40 degree gradient and no jokes, while Aarti was screaming OMG..

Jungfrau - Top of Europe

Jungfrau – Top of Europe

When we woke up in the morning, we were really excited and glad as it was a bright sunny day (looking at the weather a day before and weather forecast suggesting that the sun will be on leave), we indeed were feeling lucky. Plan was to go check out Jungfrau, so we left for the train station.

    Hi Shoeb,

    It would actually depend on which country/ies you wish to enter?
    1. Many countries accept “Carnet-De-Passage”, it is a visa kinda document for vehicles.
    2. China has its own mechanism and charges heavy duty on vehicles entering China, they wont even recognize international license.
    3. You are free to cross borders within Europe provided you have valid motor insurance.

    Let us know if you have any other questions 🙂
