Switzerland Klein Wellhorn & Rosenlaui Schlucht
- Please to see the geo position & weather for this photo spot
This is atop the Rosenlaui Gorge, a deep and narrow gorge formed by the meltwater of the Rosenlaui Glacier, accessible by a 500 m footpath. Many Tolkien-esque images everywhere you look. Gnarled trees, jagged peaks and otherworldly-looking wildflowers make this a unique location. Did I mention the glacial gorge yet?

I was surprised that it can be tricky to get there even in May. Meltwater, snow patches and avalanches make it a pretty dangerous location to shoot in April and May, but you're good during the high season. The thing is though; this is a tourist attraction. Expect many people in the gorge in June through September. Going there off-season? Trekking poles, plenty of water and a couple of snacks are what you should bring as you can easily spend a full day there.
