Rugged conglomerate rocks and an enchanted water world in the forest: this is Choleren Gorge. This jewel of nature impresses above all with its waterfalls after rainfalls. The path leads over footbridges and stairs up through the forest to Rabenflue. A magnificent view of the Lake Thun region and the Alps awaits hikers there.

From the STI stop «Hünibach, Chartreuse» of line 21, the route leads up Chartreusestrasse to Hünibachstrasse and on to Kohlerenweg. This part of the hike on hard surface takes about 15 minutes. Then it goes over a field path into the forest and to Choleren Gorge. Along the rushing water and past rugged conglomerate rocks the route leads over wooden footbridges and stairs through the forest. Especially after rainfalls the smaller and bigger waterfalls are very impressive. After a short ascent, a large mossy boulder stands on a plateau. A wooden table and benches also invite you to rest there. The large boulder is, by the way, an excellent viewpoint for the enchanted water world in the shade of the forest.

From the picnic site, the trail finally zigzags further up to Scheidweg. Once there, the paved road leads to the left to Goldiwilstrasse. On the other side of the STI stop «Scheidweg» the trail continues towards Rabenflue. The forest path will take about 30 minutes. After arriving at 864 meters above sea level you can enjoy a wonderful view of the mountains and the lake. The way back goes zigzag down to the STI stop «Wartboden» of the lines 31/32. Alternative routes lead via Brändlisberg to the STI stop Steffisburg «Glockenthalerhof» of line 1 or via Göttibach down to the STI stop «Thunerhof» of line 21.
