Swiss Hikes: The Stäuber Waterfall, Canton Of Uri

Magic Stäuber waterfall with relaxing music & nature sounds, incredible scenes of Switzerland. A peaceful ambience in the middle of the nature. Stäuber (also called Stäuben or Stäubifall) is a very powerful waterfall near Unterschächen (Klausenpass) in the region Uri, Switzerland. Stäuber is one of the bigger, more powerful waterfalls in Switzerland, especially early in the season.

Stäuber is located along road from Altdorf to Unterschächen and further to the Klausenpass. Near Aesch you already see the Stäuber in the distance, from the roadside. There are several viewpoints along the road where you have tremendous views (from a distance) on the 100 meter single drop waterfall, Stäuber. Early in the season the waterfall can get very powerful, so impressive to see. A must see when you are driving in the Uri Canton.

Driving over the Klausenpass is certainly a great experience! The Stäuber is mostly fed with melted snow and ice from the glacier Hüfi (Hüfifirn), a 7 kilometer long glacier. There is another waterfall east of the Klausenpass called Berglistüber wasserfall. A waterfall where you can walk behind and is mentioned as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Switzerland.

Hiking Views: The ‘Tell Trail’ In Switzerland (4K)

The new long-distance path Tell-Trail wends its way across the scenic Lucerne-Lake Lucerne region – from Altdorf up to the Brienzer Rothorn. In eight stages, the trail passes by glittering mountain lakes, through historic villages and world-renowned towns, and takes in the “Big 6” mountains of central Switzerland: Fronalpstock (Stoos), Rigi, Pilatus, Stanserhorn, Titlis and Brienzer Rothorn. The varied flora and fauna and the spectacular mountain landscape are constant features of the itinerary. Stage 5, from Stans to Engelberg, is particularly impressive.

If the good William Tell had had more time, he would have chosen this route through Central Switzerland. The Tell Trail leads you on spectacular high-altitude paths, into small side valleys and along dreamy rippling rivers. You will discover the most famous vantage points and the most beautiful places in Central Switzerland.

You hike in a wide arc from the Tell monument in Altdorf to the Muotathal, storm Stoos, Rigi and Mount Pilatus and finish the tour after a visit to Engelberg and Melchsee-Frutt on the Brienzer Rothorn. The hikes are demanding and the views are dazzling: If it weren’t for the landvogt Gessler, Wilhelm and Walter would have loved to take on this tour.

Hikes: Cache Lake In Yellowstone Park (4K)

Cache lake is a small and picturesque lake at the base of Electric Peak in the Gallatin BMA area of the park, and it is a short, roughly 12-mile round-trip hike to the lake and back.

This is a nice day hike that most people can do if you want to try experiencing the backcountry. You will see other people and horses on this hike but you can also see wildlife, including bears, if you hike the right way. I saw lots of grizzly tracks and saw a black bear on this hike. This hike is around 13 miles round trip and only about 1,000 vertical feet elevation gain. There is water all along this hike.
