At the last minute, we decided to spend big money, get up super early, and take a trip up ... way up, 4000 metres into the real mountains. We switch trains twice, the last one of which takes tunnels inside the mountain to the peak. Totally mind boggling and incomprehensible from an engineering perspective. It would be a decision we came to cherish, it gave us a truly once in a lifetime experience.
Never before had I been in a situation where the scenery was so so so stunning, taking a poor photo was impossible.
