Day 1 - Luzern - Lake, Chapel bridge , Local tour
Day 2- Mt. Titlis
OK and at the end of this day it might be the best to move over to Interlaken already, or even better and cheaper: to Lauterbrunnen !
Day 3-Interlaken , Lauternbrunnen, Grindelwald ,Jungfraujoch
here you have quite much on a single day, so it makes sense to start from Lauterbrunnen.
Jungfraujoch is something for PERFECT weather only, otherwise save the money !!!
It will take you at least 5-6 hours on the total !
INTERLAKEN itself has not enough to see for someone who has just 5 days in CH !
Day 4 - Glacier Express/ Golden pass line
YES, you can and maybe you return the same day, that is possible when you take the 1st train in the morning and much better than Geneve might be Montreux and Chillon Castle, all of that is doable in 1 day, BUT forget about the "Golden pass train" - there are many more trains on the same track with the same view and without reservation !
Day 5 -Geneva
maybe you better skip this !
Day6 - Zurich - Rhine fall

Gimmelwald ????
Do yourself a favor and skip it !
One way 30min by bus from Lauterbrunnen to Stechelberg, then wait for the cablecar and get to a place without cars, but lots of cows and a few houses, that is all !
Maybe that makes sense when you skip Jungfraujoch and go to TRUMMELBACH FALLS, that makes sense on a cloudy day as well:

Trummelbach falls is about halfway between Lauterbrunnen and Stechelberg !

Thanks a lot globetrott for your answer. So you suggesting instead of Geneva we should cover montreux and chillon castle . How long it takes from luzern to reach montreux ,is it near lake geneva.

And Where to catch Galcier Express from .

Montreux is the endpoint of the "Golden train" directely on lake geneva !
and another special place in Switzerland, between Montreux and Bern, BUT not along that trainline of the Golden pass:

Interlaken - Montreux is a bit shorter than from Luzern (diff. is around 2 hours maybe one way)

Can we take golden pass line from luzern which will land to Montreux and from there we can visit chillion castle . Is it a good idea.

The Golden Pass goes first from Luzern to Interlaken OST. There you have to change the train anyway from Narrow-gauge to ordinary gauge. Next place to change trains will be SPIEZ, but some trains will go through there as well.
