FOROGLIO in Ticino is probably mostly known for the waterfall of the same name. The waterfall can be seen from all over the village. It is possible to reach, or at least get closer to, the waterfall from two sides, an easy path close to the foot of the fall and a more challenging hike from the opposite end of the village. The reward for the challenging route is a fantastic view over the valley and directly to the side of the waterfall. At a height of more than 100 meters, it splashes down the rocks causing a cooling mist of water. The stream from the Calnegia river then ends up in the Bavona river.
The village Foroglio, like most of the small villages in the Bavona Valley is without electricity, but it is still possible to have a delicious lunch in the Osteria Froda. The stone house village is very picturesque and complete tranquil, except at the most touristic periods.

The Simmenfälle is a powerful waterfall near Oberried (Lenk) in the region Berner Oberland, Switzerland.
The Simmenfälle is very easy to reach. From Zweisimmen drive to Lenk and further to Oberried, the end of the valley. Park the car somewhere near the restaurant (the big parking is only for customers). From here it is a few minute walk to the base of the Simmenfälle.
The Simmenfälle cascades down with great force with a descend of appr. 40 meter. A nice spectacle to see. There is a trail along the waterfall going further up to the Barbarabrücke (the upper part of the Simmenfälle) and the Simmenquelle (Siebenbrunne), a karstic waterfall.

Norways Most Beautiful Summer Experience? Sunset Camping at Kjerag Falls 1000 m above Lysefjorden 4k June 2021.
Camping a 1000m above Lysefjord and experiencing the Kjerag Waterfall in a spectacular sunset from above, I found this experience to be better than watching the Yosemite Firefalls, very similar effect, but seen alone from right above the waterfall with a rainbow and the Fjord with tiny boats and everything before going to sleep in my tent.
