A beginner-friendly via ferrata from Adelboden to Engstligenalp with easy route guidance along the roaring Entschligefäll.

The Chäligang via ferrata was opened in summer 2008 and takes visitors close to the thundering waters of the Entschlige river, which roars down the steep walls below the Engstligen cable car as a rushing waterfall at the head of the valley above Adelboden. Despite damp, slippery sections, the trail is an absolutely recommendable beginner's terrata that can be conquered easily, even by children. The easy route and the continuous insurances guarantee safety even for less experienced climbers. Above the via ferrata is the idyllic Entschligenalp with a wonderful view of the winter sports resort of Adelboden and the surrounding mountains of the Bernese Oberland. If you want to spare your kneecaps after the climb, you can also take the cable car directly to the starting point.
