Engstligenalp Chäligang via ferrata

The Engstligen Falls, one of the emblems of Adelboden, are among Switzerland's highest waterfalls.

The easy via ferrata runs along these stunningly beautiful waterfalls from Adelboden up to Engstligenalp. The tour offers every climber a magnificent and unique spectacle, and is very suitable for families. Following a 20-minute walk, climbers are secured to a rope and follow the Chäligang towards Engstligenalp. The way is easy, the view down onto the Engstligtal valley below and the village of Adelboden filled with colourful impressions.
