Leukerbad is a municipality in the district of Leuk in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. The story of Leukerbad dates back to the 4th century B.C. in view of the graves and ceramics that have attested the presence of habitation in Leukerbad. From the 5th century, the pass of the Gemmi, a unique link between the cantons of Valais and Bern, has been in use. Situated in the canton of Valais in the south of Switzerland at 1,411 m (4,629 ft) above sea level, the location is very impressive because of the cliffs which surround Leukerbad. The cable-car to Torrent Alp brings to the Rinderhütte at 2,313 m (7,589 ft) above sea level. In winter it is the paradise of skiers who then have 50 km (31 mi) of runs at their disposal. The panoramic views from the Rinderhütte of the 4,000 m (13,000 ft) peaks of the Valais, French and Italian Alps are breath taking.
