Lagginafälle

(Lagginafall Nord & Sud)

The Lagginafälle are two paralel waterfalls coming down from the glacier Holutrift at the east side of the mountain Lagginhorn (4.010 m). The waterfall is located near Gabi (Simplon) in the region Valais, Switzerland.

The Lagginafälle isn’t very easy to reach but from Simplon village a small road is going south paralel to road E62 heading into the Laginnatal (Valley). I am not sure how fare it is allowed to drive on the small road but the road ends at the river not far from the Lagginafälle. From the end of the road it is only a short walk (10-15 minutes) until you the waterfall at the right side of the Laggina valley.

There are two separate plunges coming down from the Holutrif, Weissmies and Laggin glaciers. A lot of ice and snow is melting down in the early summer. The waterfalls has a total height of appr. 140 meter.
