Photographer's Note

Mount Titlis in central Switzerland is a popular tourist destination, especially for indian tourists as many a Bollywood film has been filmed on location.
On top of the mountain at an altitude of 10'000 feet, tourists get prepared for a holiday souvenir in traditional Swiss gear and with our national instrument that is the Alphorn.
The Alphorn was first mentioned in 1527 when a monk described at having given an Alphorn player a coin for his performance. It was used as a signal and to convey messages from one alp to the next, as a Alphorn can be heard for over 10km.
