The great heat of the last few days has also left its mark on the Rhone Glacier. A strong melting can be observed on the glacier (partly with ice collapses). Due to this fact the already existing lake is getting bigger and bigger.
- Due to the retreat of the glacier, rockfalls can occur in the area of the "exposed slopes" at the accesses to the glacier, the grotto or the surrounding area.
- Also the stay on the glacier tongue as well as in the area of the lake is risky.
- The municipality of Obergoms therefore asks all persons staying in the area of the Rhone glacier to be aware of this danger and to behave accordingly (self-responsibility). (July 2022 / Municipality of Obergoms)
