General description

Considered one of the most spectacular in the Alps, the Parcines waterfall cascades down the rock face from a height of almost 100 m. It is particularly impressive in early spring with the melting of snow, when as many as 10,000 liters of water per second flow into the Zielbach torrent.


Route description
