Aerial view from the region of Engelberg

Aerial view from the region of Engelberg

Sometimes flights are holding surprises. Then it is important to have a still camera available. It is then a pleasure to take a set of pictures.

Here we are above Isenthal and we are looking towards west.

The snow covered mountain in the sunshine that is seen right and below in the picture is the Chaiserstuel. This mountain is located on the border between the cantons of Nidwalden and Uri. One sees distinctly the ridge going down from this top towards left crossing the Bannalper Schonegg and going up again towards Ruchstock. To the right ant below Chaiserstuel, one sees the pass of Sinsgäuer Schonegg that enables the crossing from Oberrickenbach to Isenthal.

Above Chaiserstuel is the Rigidalstock range. It is the range that located to the north of Engelberg and that displays impressive limestone rock walls.

Far below to the left, one sees another characteristic top of this region: the Engelberger Rotstock. It is the top that looks like an Egyptian pyramid when seen from Rugghubelhütte.

Behind Rigidalstock range one sees the bend of the valley of Engelberg. One also gets a glimpse of the village of Engelberg just to the left of the Rigidalstock.

Above the village one sees clearly the flat of Gerschnialp that leads to the even slope of Laub.

Above the bend of the valley, one sees the range on the border between Nidwalden and Obwalden with the tops of Graustock, Hanghorn and Huetstock.

In the background, one sees the Bernese Alps near Lake Brienz and Thun.
