The Via Mala Gorge, 5 km from Thusis, is the largest gorge in the canton of Graubünden. The gorge in parts is only a few meters wide, with rocks up to 300 m high. This narrow gorge was formed by the Hinterrhein River, a headstream of the Rhine.
One of the most wild and picturesque gorges in Switzerland, the Via Mala is walled by vertical limestone cliffs as the Splügen Road passes above the gorge. To experience the Via Mala fully, one should descend the 321 safe steps to the Rhine, admire the and dramatically carved cliffs”whirl-pots” as seen in this photograph.
