View Point: Chamois in the Area of the «teiffi Schluecht»

In the touristy heavily used landscape around the Kleine Scheidegg between Wengen and Grindelwald, the steep western slopes between Männlichen and Lauberhorn provide an ideal retreat territory for chamois. With a good eye and some luck you can observe the animals, free from giddiness, in the wilderness. The population in the said area was continuously monitored in a unique research project of the University of Bern in 2000. The researchers explored the effects of heavy snowfalls, strong winds or by paragliders on the animals' behavior.
