Glütschbachtal

The river Glütschbach flows down from the Stockhorn chain of mountains in the Bernese Oberland of Switzerland, passing through a long flat valley in the forests near Thun before joining the river Aare at Uttigen. The Tropfsteinhöhlen (flowstone caves) near Amsoldingen are a relic from a time before the river Kander was diverted into Lake Thun near Gwatt. It used to pass through this valley and carved its way through remarkable horizontal sheetlike deposits of calcite and other carbonate minerals.
