Gondola Tickets to Mont Sulfur
The air is clean and clear up here. There’s a slight chill in the wind, but that’s okay because you’re warm in the gondola, on your way to the summit. Gazing down from the jagged mountain ridge, you stare in amazement at the town, lakes, and rivers on the valley floor far below. Around you, massive peaks reach into the sky. You feel small in the vastness of the alpine, and it’s such a revitalizing and calming sensation.
