A walk in the waterfall valley

August 17, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Magnificent Lauterbrunnen valley hosts as many as 72 waterfalls, the most famous being the Staubbach Falls. Plunging almost 300 metres from an overhanging rock, they are one of the highest free-falling waterfalls in Europe. It's an absolutely incredible place, and the power of nature is truly overwhelming!

Another breathtaking natural phenomenon are the Trümmelbach Falls in the ‘Black Monk’ mountain, hidden behind mighty rock faces. Up to 20,000 litres of water per second cascade over the ten glacier falls from a total height of about 200 meters.  This is definitely a good hide-away place on hot  summer days (It's not the case in Switzerland this year, though)!
