St. Gotthard Pass, Switzerland

On a scenic drive from Luzern, we drove to the St. Gotthard pass. Here are some pictures from once we reached the pass.

This is definitely a must-do drive if you have a car in the Luzern area and is an easy, day trip. It is dangerously scenic - we had to make sure that whosoever was driving was concentrating on the road and not on the mountains around.

6800 plus feet? I say try our 12000 plus Ladakh or Spiti some time. The pictures are beautiful.

I read your blog and thought I could tell you about something else which would be useful for seeing maps and directions in India.

I am writing to tell you about, a free interactive maps and directions portal for all India. See the map of connaught place, new delhi, get directions in mumbai from nariman point to juhu airport, and find nearby ATMs in kormangala, bangalore.

As a company and individual enthusiasts, we dream only of solving the problem of reliable directions and navigation for India. For your blog specifically, you can map enable it by using our youtube-style embeddable maps, and links to specific searches (of maps, directions, local and eLocation) on MapmyIndia.

Do give us feedback, suggestions, or get involved yourself by mailing me back at or

And if you find the different services useful, we would be grateful to you for writing and telling your readers about us.

Warm Regards,

For directions in India, just search print and go with

Thanks Mridula and Shalini. And I do need to be reminded occassionally about this space and Mridula you do it well :-)

Shalini - we are almost settled. Thanks.

I called the place dangerously beautiful because with someone like Sunit behind the wheel who likes to look around, beautiful scenery can become dangerous too :-) I had to tell him to pull over - he was paying so little attention to the road sometimes.

He he! Dont blame Sunit. If you had been behind the wheels, I guess you'd have done the same :-P
