Nice village and waterfall, but really nothing special. Not sure why people write that this is the best waterfall in Switzerland, there is better even in Ticino. Stop by if you are already in the area, by all means, but certainly not worth going there...More

This is an excellent waterfall in an area of Switzerland which has yet to be discovered by mass tourism. The trip from Locarno took about an hour and we were surrounded by spectacular scenery there and back.

Probably the nicest and coolest waterfall in switzerland. Amazing mountain scenery paired with the deep sound of tons of falling water. Make sure you get as close as possible to get the max feeling.

Huge waterfall in a quiet and remote valley, with a walkway leading to it. Lovely picturesque village right next to the waterfall. Worth the drive!

To sit at an out door table and watch the waterfall while eating was fantastic. The special prepared Polenta with cheese was great.

Foroglio Waterfall is in the Bavona Valley, Ticino. The waterfall is a spectacular sight, rushing down an 80 meter high rock. A great place to walk, take a picnic with you and enjoy the sights.

beautiful. at the foot of this waterfall there is a small village, so cute. if you want to do something special, take a picknick and walk up past the waterfall and go and find a nice spot to eat in the valley above.
