The ice and later on the the melt water have created a fantastic landscape of rocks - the Massa Gorge, which is safe to visit thanks to its reservoir dam. The site of unforgettable canyoning is the authentic Valaisian village of Blatten at the Aletsch Glacier.The entrance to the gorges is situated at the foot of the 120-foot Gebidem Dam, which was build by the Electra Massa Corporation in the 1960s in order to utilized the natural energy generated by the water. Equipped with a Neoprene suit, helmet and climbing belt one climbs over rocks which were left behind by the Aletsch Glacier in the last Ice Age about 11,000 years ago. Highlights: the 8-meter jump into a beautiful waterbasin and the 30-meter descent on a rope into the "Cathedral".
