I am coming to Switzerland for a conference which will get over on 2nd July night at Geneva. I will be free to explore the country from the morning of 3rd July.

I would like to visit Mount Titlis.

I have yet not booked my return flight to Mumbai, India

Can you please guide me on the following queries?

1) I am a budget traveler. After leaving from Geneva, which place should I go to as a base for Mount Titlis? Which hostel will you recommend?

2) How to reach Mount Titlis from Geneva?

3) What time should I leave from Geneva to reach Mount Titlis? I need to check-in to a base hostel to keep my luggage

4) Where should I go after Mount Titlis?

5) From where should I book my return flight to India?

6) How much will be the cost of this trip?

7) Should I pre-book the tickets online or buy it on the go?

8) What is the wather prediction for Mount Titlis on 4th or 5th of July? Will it be worth going up on any of there days?

Thank you very much in advance

Hi AnkitBhupt,

Welcome to MySwissAlps!

1) I would recommend to stay in Lucerne, and to get there via the scenic Golden Pass line if time permits:

2) You would then depart from Lucerne, please find guidance here: tlis/gettingthere.

3) Please find travel times via metable.

4) You'll find many suggestions on our Lucerne page.

5) Zurich is closest: rports/zurich

6) Sorry, that's for you to find out after putting together a plan. There are too many decencies (number of nights, travel pass/tickets, hotel choice).

7) If you need a pass for the trains and other day trips, then it's best to get that online. The Titlis ticket is best purchased when you know the weather will be good. If your date is fixed you can buy it online at any time too.

8) The weather is unknown until a few days ahead of time, please see ather/forecast.

3rd July - Departure from Geveva to Lucerne. Exploring the city in evening & night stay at a hostel in Lucerne

4th July - Departure for Mount Titils from Lucerne. Night stay at Lucerne or Zürich

based on this, can you please suggest me if should I really get a any pass or buy individual tickets? And if I should buy pass, which one?

Grab yourself a Saver Day Pass ( verdaypass and for the trip from Geneva to Luzern. Apart from that a pass is probably not worthwhile.

Stay 2 nights in Luzern - don't shift accommodation to Zurich.
