About Port Blair


LTC Switzerland Tour Packages

The green, ramshackle capital sprawls around a harbour on the east coast of South Andaman and is the administrative nerve centre of the islands. There’s plenty to see in town relating to the islands’ colonial past plus a couple of interesting museums, and as this is the only place to change money, reliably access the internet and book (and wait for) onward transport, most travellers will spend at least a couple of days here. If you want to experience the more natural beauty of the Andamans – above and below the water – book a ferry and move on to Havelock or one of the other islands.

Mythologicaly, the name Andaman was presumed to be derived from Hanuman, who was known to the Malays as Handuman. Since Prehistoric times, these islands were the home of aboriginal tribes. The tribes of, the Andaman group of islands are the Great Andamanese, Onges, Jarawas, and Sentinatese, all of Negrito origin, while the tribes of Nicobars are the Nicobarese and Shompens, both of Mongoloid stock.

The first settlement by the British took place in 1789, which was later abandoned in 1796. The second settlement was basically a penal settlement, taken up in 1858, after the First War of Independence, followed by the settlement of convicts, Moplas, some criminal tribes from Central and United Provinces, refugees from erstwhile East Pakistan, Burma and Sri Lanka as well as ex-servicemen.

About Switzerland


LTC Switzerland Holiday Packages

If you could travel through only one European country, which might you choose? Italy? France? Germany? How about a taste of three in one? That can only mean Switzerland! Known as a summer and winter sports paradise (just look at those glistening white 4000m-plus Alpine peaks and glittering lakes), Switzerland is where people first skied for fun. Illustrious names evoke all the romance and glamorous drama of the mountain high life: Zermatt, St Moritz, Interlaken, Gstaad, the Jungfrau, Verbier and more. Cities like Geneva (the most cosmopolitan), Zürich (the most outrageous), Basel and Lausanne heave with heady artistic activity and sometimes incendiary nightlife.

Beyond the après-ski chic, edelweiss and Heidi lies a complex country of cohabiting cultures. It not only has four languages (Swiss German, French, Italian and Romansch), but the cultural variety to match. You could be chomping on sausages over beer in an oom-pah-pah Stübli one day and pasta over a glass of merlot in a granite grotto the next. And if over-indulgence becomes a problem try one of the country's thermal baths, from Yverdon-les-Bains to Scuol.

The grandeur of the finest churches, such as the cathedrals in Lausanne and Bern, contrasts with sparkling but lesser-known treasures like the frescoes of Müstair or the abbey complex of St Gallen (both World Heritage sites).

The list of enchanting towns is endless: from Lucerne with its covered bridge to Neuchâtel and its fountains; from Gruyères with its cheese, and Grimentz with its traditional timber houses to the sgraffito-blazoned buildings of Engadine towns like Scuol and Zuoz. Whether visiting the remotest Ticino villages or sampling the finest of Valais wines, you'll find Switzerland a chocolate box bursting with unexpected flavours.

About Chennai (Madras)


LTC Switzerland Holiday Tour Packages

Chennai has either the cosmopolitan, prosperous air of Mumbai (Bombay), the optimistic buzz of Bengaluru (Bangalore) or the historical drama of Delhi. It’s muggy, polluted, hot as hell and difficult to get around. Traditional tourist attractions are few. Even the movie stars are, as one Chennaiker put it, ‘not that hot’.

But the locals are a little friendlier than average here, the streets a little wider and, in spite of its booming IT, business-outsourcing and auto industries, the pace much slower than in most Indian cities half its size. Chennai is so modest you wouldn’t even know it’s an economic powerhouse, much less a queen of showbiz: India’s fourth-largest city is also its most humble.

About Lucerne

Lucerne lies at the shores of the Lake of Lucerne (Vierwaldstättersee) and is the capital of Central Switzerland. The nearby Alpine foothills offer an impressive view of the ice-capped peaks of the Alps, and the well-preserved medieval town centre dates back to the 8th century A.D. when a small monastery of the order of St. Benedictine was founded at the mouth of the River Reuss. Lucerne boasts world-famous landmarks such as the
Chapel
Bridge (Kappelbrücke) and the Wasserturm. Apart from tourist attractions, the town also offers a modern infrastructure with a wide range of cinemas, museums, theatres, restaurants, clubs, and an extensive andwell-run public transport system. The Lucerne Festival, the Rose d’Or, the Museum of Transport and the Rosengart Collection (Picasso, Paul Klee), but also shops specialized in watches and jewelry, attract an international clientele.

The Kapellbrücke ("Chapel Bridge" in German) is a 204 m (670 ft) long bridge crossing the Reuss River in the city of Lucerne in Switzerland. It is the oldest wooden bridge in Europe, and one of Switzerland's main tourist attractions.
 
Kapellbrücke The covered bridge, constructed in 1333, was designed to help protect the city of Lucerne from attacks. Inside the bridge are a series of paintings from the 17th century, depicting events from Luzerne's history. Much of the bridge, and the majority of these paintings, were destroyed in a 1993 fire, though it was quickly rebuilt.

Adjoining the bridge is the 140 feet (43 m) tall Wasserturm (Water Tower),
an octagonal tower made from brick, which has served as a prison, torture chamber, watchtower and treasury. Today the tower, which is part of the city wall, is used as the guild hall of the artillery association. The tower and the bridge are Lucerne's trademark and form the most photographed monument in the country.

Bourbaki Panorama

The renovated Bourbaki Panorama is an extremely professional depiction of the Franco-Prussian war of 1870-71, with a moving narrative (also in English) that brings to life the 1100-sq-metre circular painting of miserable-looking troops and civilians. All the same, it's hard to see the panorama appealing to those without a specific military interest.

Gletschergarten

This strip of rock bears the scars (including huge potholes) inflicted on it by the glacier that slid over it some 20 million years ago. The best thing about the garden, though, is its kitschy 1001-nights mirror maze. Historisches Museum
Cleverly and carefully organised into a series of attention-grabbing themes, from lust and lasciviousness to government and tourism. Pick up a barcode-reading audio-guide, pick your topic and let yourself be guided through your chosen story in German or English.

Kapellbrücke

Crossing the Reuss River in the Old Town, this bridge is Lucerne's most potent symbol. It dates from the 14th century and the octagonal water tower remains original. However its sides and gabled roof are modern reconstructions, rebuilt after a disastrous fire in 1993. Kultur und Kongresszentrum & Kunstmuseum
A striking work of postmodern architecture in an otherwise largely historic city, Parisian architect Jean Nouvel's Kultur und Kongresszentrum & Kunstmuseum really stands out with its prime waterfront location, neighbouring the main train station.

Lake
Lucerne
If you're not averse to breathtaking mountain scenery - perhaps a glance or two at a shimmering expanse of water with majestic steep peaks of limestone hunched over the coastline, forests coming down to the shore filled with deer, chamois, foxes, and Alpine-native marmots; and fertile hillsides, meadows and valleys beyond - then this lake won't disappoint. Lion Monument
Danish artist Bertel Thorvaldsen's Lion of Lucerne (Löwendenkmal) was built in 1819-21, a big dying beast sculptured into a former sandstone quarry wall. When author Mark Twain saw it he said it was the 'saddest and most moving piece of rock in the world'.

Museggmauer

The well-preserved, 14th-century city wall (Museggmauer) provides marvellous views of Lucerne's rooftops, alleyways and squares with medieval, Renaissance and Baroque houses, and beyond to the lake and mountains. A walkway is open between the Schirmerturm (tower), where you enter, and the Wachturm, from where you have to retrace your steps. You can also ascend and descend the Zytturm or Männliturm (the latter not connected to the ramparts walkway).

Naturhistorisches
Museum
Offers an enticing entree into the natural world, especially for children, with lots of hands-on displays.

Picasso
Museum
Don't arrive at the Picasso Museum expecting to find many of the man's works. Although it does include a few ceramics and sketches, this is principally a portrait of the artist as an impish craftsman, lover and father. Nearly 200 photographs by David Douglas Duncan create a captivating picture of the last 17 years of Picasso's life with his family in their Cannes home. It's a uniquely revealing series.

Richard
Wagner Museum
Housed in the composer's former residence in Tribschen, on the lake's southern shore; it has a collection of historic musical instruments.

Sammlung Rosengart

Contains a significant amount of Picasso's own art. Showcasing the works retained by Angela Rosengart, a Swiss art dealer and friend of Picasso's, its ground floor is entirely devoted to the Spanish master. In the basement, there's a selection of sketches and small paintings by Paul Klee; upstairs you'll find works by Cezanne, Kandinsky, Miro and Modigliani, and a fine handful of pictures by Marc Chagall.

Spreuer Bridge

After fire destroyed the Kapellbrücke, the wooden Spreuer Bridge (Spreuerbrücke), zigzagging across the Reuss, became Lucerne's oldest bridge. It was built in 1407 and its 17th-century roof paintings remain intact, detailing 56 movie-storyboard-style scenes by Caspar Meglinger, called The Dance of Death.

Verkehrshaus
Planes, trains and automobiles are showcased in the huge, family-oriented Verkehrshaus. They are found alongside space rockets, flight simulators and other interactive exhibits designed to bring out your inner child (or inner bully if you're one of the occasionally over-eager adults). Switzerland's most popular museum also has a planetarium, a giant-screen IMAX cinema and the Swiss Arena - an eye-catching floor map of Switzerland and accompanying geographical puzzle.

Day 5

Surface/ Lucerne /Surface/ Mt. Pilatus
A day at leisure to explore Mt. Pilatus (2132m). Overnight in Interlaken Apartment.

About Mt. Pilatus

Mt. Pilatus is a mountain near Lucerne, Switzerland. Jurisdiction over the mountain is divided between the cantons of Obwalden, Nidwalden, and Lucerne. The peak is in Obwalden right on the border with Nidwalden. The top can be reached with the Pilatus Railway, the world’s steepest cogwheel railway from Alpnachstad, operating from May to November (depending on snow conditions), and the whole year with the aerial panorama gondolas and aerial cableways from Kriens.

About Mt. Jungfrau

The Jungfrau (German: "maiden/virgin") is one of the main summits in the Bernese Alps, situated between the cantons of Valais and Berne in Switzerland. Together with the Eiger and Mönch, the Jungfrau forms a massive wall overlooking the Bernese Oberland and considered one of the most emblematic sights of the Swiss Alps. The construction of the Jungfraujoch railway east to the summit in the early 20th century made the area one of the most frequented places in the Alps. The Aletsch Glacier lying on the south was declared a World Heritage site in 2001.
