The natural spectacle of Choleren Gorge

The 100-metre-long Choleren Gorge in Adelboden offers a majestic water spectacle.

Made accessible with bridges and steps, this rocky gorge allows you to experience the raging waters of the Tschenten stream as they pour forth into the deeply hollowed-out ravine.

Availability Today (Sunday) open

Notes

It is essential to enter using the lower access point in order to explore the gorge from bottom to top – this is safer and more impressive. Do not hike through the Choleren gorge in case of heavy rainfall.

The excursion to the Choleren Gorge can be perfectly combined with a visit to the Pochtenkessel, a deep rocky funnel where the waters of Engstligen and Otterebach meet. Since 2005, the Jungbrunnen (“Fountain of Youth”) has been open for swimming.
