Facts Engstligenalp - Unter dem Birg

Enjoying the falls from a rocky path

From the valley at Unter dem Birg you can already see the Engstligen Falls, and the steep surrounding rock walls. It seems impossible that there's a footpath leading down from Engstligenalp along the falls, but there is. The path is not dangerous, although walking carefully is recommended; many sections of the path consist of rocks and loose stones. At the beginning of the route, you will have a nice view of the village of Adelboden. Then the path continues steeply downwards through a rocky landscape and flowery meadows, and soon you will come face to face with the beautiful Engstligen Falls. You will pass impressive rock walls and then reach Unter dem Birg through the forest.

An alternative is to do the trail uphill; this takes about 15 minutes more.
