The Flying Dutchman (December 2022) – This natural gorge is located on the edge of Imst and represents one of the most important biotopes in Tirol. The Rosengartenschlucht measures 1.5 kilometres in length and is traversed by the rushing Schinderbach river starting at the enchanting Blue Grotto. Wooden walkways, paths blasted into the rock and small tunnels through the mountainside invite visitors to explore this fantastic landscape. The entrance to the gorge is a highlight in its own right, with a number of houses which have been built into the rockface. The gorge is open from May until October. Sturdy footwear is required.

In Hålland between Undersåker and Järpen lies the easily accessible Ristafallet. Turn off the E14 from Hålland into Ristafallet’s Camping. Park by the restaurant, then walk through the camping area until you find the waterfall.
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.
The Langtang trek is one of the shorter hiking routes in Nepal. It offers fantastic scenery from the jungle with banana trees and monkeys at lower altitudes to glaciers and ice peaks at higher elevations.
Langtang was a village development committee in Rasuwa District in the Bagmati Zone of northern Nepal. At the time of the 1991 Nepal census it had a population of 468 people living in 100 individual households.
This walk starts at the ruins of the Basilica Sant’Eustachio in the town of Pontone. The hike will take you through the Valle delle Ferriere (Valley of the Ironworks) and then through the Valle dei Mulini (Valley of the Mills). The walk concludes with a tour of Amalfi and a walk along the beach.
The Amalfi Coast is a 50-kilometer stretch of coastline along the southern edge of Italy’s Sorrentine Peninsula, in the Campania region. It’s a popular holiday destination, with sheer cliffs and a rugged shoreline dotted with small beaches and pastel-colored fishing villages. The coastal road between the port city of Salerno and clifftop Sorrento winds past grand villas, terraced vineyards and cliffside lemon groves.
Grindelwald, a village in Switzerland’s Bernese Alps, is a popular gateway for the Jungfrau Region, with skiing in winter and hiking in summer. It’s also a base for mountain-climbing ascents up the iconic north face of Eiger Mountain. Gletscherschlucht, a glacial gorge just outside Grindelwald, features paths with interpretive signage, waterfalls and striated limestone walls.
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.
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.
