Cleuson dam

Because of the breathtaking view and its turquoise waters, the Cleuson dam is an excellent place for an excursion.

Seerenbach Falls and the Rin Spring

The Serenbach Falls at the northern shore of Lake Walen are some of Switzerland's highest and most impressive waterfalls. From an altitude of 600 meters they plummet into the lake.

A forest trail leads from Betlis village to a vantage point, opening up a vista to a gigantic water spectacle. The Seerenbach thunders over the vertical cliff face on the northern shore of Lake Walen, cascading 585 m in a series of stages down to Betlis to join the waters of the Rin Spring.

Gastern Valley and Chluse

The young Kander River rushes with force into the valley. The Gasterntal, a high, untouched valley formed by the glacier, reveals here its breathtaking beauty. A groomed hiking trail runs along the Kander up to Kanderfirn, the origin of the river. For hikers and climbers, the Gastern Valley is the starting point of wonderful tours.

The Gastern Valley (Gasterntal) can only be accessed via the narrow Chluse Gorge on foot or by bus from the Kandersteg Railroad Station.
