The Parcines Waterfall

With a drop of 97 metres, it is an impressive natural spectacle.
The Parcines waterfall is one of the most impressive in the Alps. Its masses of water shoot far out over a freestanding rock face and then plunge thunderously into the depths like a cloudburst from open sky sluices in an incessant succession of "water curtains". In favourable sunlight, myriads of droplets shimmer in all colours of the rainbow.

The height of the fall is 97 m. The waterfall is most powerful at the time of snowmelt (May to July) or after heavy rainfall (water flow 4,000 to 10,000 litres per second).
