Swiss Alps Jungfrau-Aletsch

Massa Gorge

The Massa gorge is a phenomenon of the Great Aletsch glacier. The 6,5 km long Massa gorge has been created by the mighty ice masses that drilled through the rocks in thousands of years and the melt water giving it the final touch. It begins at the Gibidum dam in Blatten near Naters and stretches over an altitudinal difference of 600 meters. Already in 1980 people have perceived the originality of this impressive rock landscape. Since then, the Massa gorge became an additional tourist attraction and popular destination in the region for hikers high up on the Massa trail or the adventurers experiencing unforgettable canyoning.
