A Short Photo Essay: Trümmelbach Falls

by Gigi Griffis

Trummelbach Falle

Last time we visited the Lauterbrunnen Valley, while hiking back down from the mountain paths surrounding Wengen, we accidentally stumbled upon Trümmelbach as it cascaded down toward the valley. This time, I paid the 11 Swiss francs it takes to go inside the mountain and see where the falls have cut through the rock.

It was totally worth it.
