Kiental Wildwater Trail
The Kiental Wildwater Trail starts from the village of Tschingel in the Kiental Valley and passes deep gorges, tumbling waterfalls and steep rocky walls on its route up to Griesalp.
One remarkable feature is the “Hexenkessel” (witch’s cauldron), a bubbling and foaming pot of water. The power of the natural forces is tangible. The natural spectacle, in fact, appeals to all of the senses. The Wildwater Trail is particularly impressive between the months of June and August, since at that time the quantity of water is swollen by the thawing snows. After heavy rainfall, too, the flow of water is stronger. The route is well graded and can also easily be followed in the reverse direction.
