Kiental is a village in the valley of the same name in the Bernese Oberland. The village and valley belong to the municipality of Reichenbach im Kandertal. The Kiental runs parallel to the Kandertal in the northeast and is crossed by the river Chiene. The valley is bordered by the mountains ärmighorn, Gehrihorn and Dreispitz. The Kiental is a popular starting point for mountain tours and high mountain hikes. These include, for example, tours over the Hohtürli to Kandersteg or to the Blüemlisalp. The Blüemlisalp is a mountain massif that is heavily glaciated. The Kiental has several whirlpools and waterfalls that are popular to visit. A path leads from Griesalp over Tschingelsee to the village of Kiental. The Tschingelsee was created in 1972 after a storm and has been under nature protection since then.
