“Magic hike”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2012 via mobile

Easy hike to an impressive place, classified as a national park in Switzerland. View is amazing and of you are lucky, you can wild life like chamois, linx.... or more easier, the Alps on the back on a sunny day

“Nice, Short Trip”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 12, 2012

It's a huge gorge or something. I think I read it's Switzerland's Grand Canyon. Uhh, I've never been to the Grand Canyon, so I don't have the proper perspective. What I can tell you is that it has stunning views, the hike is easy especially if you're carting around one year old twins and there's a cafe/farmhouse at the start and finish of your hike.

“For the hiking (treking) enthusiatic person, the vue of this natural phenomenon is exceptional.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 16, 2012

A remnant of the glacial passage through this area of the Jura mountains, this funnel-like rock formation is known locally as an "emposieu" and serves as a water run-off. What is marvelous is the sheer size of the structure and color of the rocks, that tell a history of what took place over the years. Simply breath-taking, but to get there, put on your walking boots to go by the mountain trail and dress appropriately.
