Karstgebiet Sägistal

Norbert Marwan

The Sägistal valley is a remote high valley in the Bernese Prealpes with typical karst phenomena. The exploration of caves started in the 1970ies by the SGH-Interlaken and is coordinated since 1988 by the International Alpine Karst Group (ISAAK) with support of numerous international speleo clubs. More than 400 caves have been documented with the “Oberländer-Chessiloch” system the largest one (2346 m length, −488 m depth).
