On the Merano High Mountain Trail n° 24 to the Waterfall of Partschins

a natural marvel - the unstoppable force of nature

General description

Without a doubt, the Partschinser waterfall is among the loveliest in the alpine region. It is situated in the Zieltal valley, north west of Partschins/Parcines and with a drop height of around 97 meters, plunges from 1,110 meters to 1,015 meters above sea level. The Zieltal valley and its tributary valleys and various three thousand meter-plus mountains stretch out over several kilometers to the north. To the south, the Zielbach stream flows through Salten, then past Partschins/Parcines, finally joining the river Etsch/Adige between Rabland/Rablà and Töll/Tel. The waterfall is at its most powerful during the thaw from May to June, or after heavy rainfall. At these times, up to 10,000 liters of water per second find their way down into the valley.
