Changed a ropeway to cable car, I went up to the top of a mountain called Hafelekarspitze. Hafelekarspitze is one of mountains in the so-called Nordkette mountain range. The height of the mountain is 2,334m.

The view from the top of the mountain took my breath away. I took a rest for a while there, and left for this world.

It’s time to get down to the lower world.
