Narrow Aar Gorge Walkway in Switzerland

25 Aug 2014 by admin

The Aar Gorge is a narrow strait formed at the end of the last ice age, 10,000 years ago, after a torrential runoff water from melting glaciers eroded a deep gap through the limestone hill. This gorge is found near the town of Meiringen, in Switzerland.

Today, due to erosion, the Aar Gorge is 1,400 meters long and only a few meters wide at its base, its cliffs climbing almost vertically upwards to a height of over 50 meters.

A steel walkway built along the bottom of the cliff wall creates access for the public since 1889.
