The Staubbachfall is a 297 meter high waterfall in Lauterbrunnen, the water of which falls from the left flank of the Lauterbrunnen valley in the Bernese Oberland onto the valley floor. In connection with the regularly occurring thermals, the water is dusted in all directions, which is what gave the waterfall its name.The fall is accessible in summer via a rock gallery. The rest of the time, the path is closed due to ice fall and possible rock fall.The Staubbachfall is one of those waterfalls that form on the shoulders of the Ice Age trough valleys in the Alps. As a result of the glacial cut during the cold ages, the high and vertical rocks were created over which the streams plunge into the depths. After the Seerenbach Falls on Lake Walen, the Staubbach Falls are one of the highest waterfalls in Switzerland.
