Dischmabach in the Dischma valley
|Origin||Two headwaters come together in Dürrboden|
Confluence with the Landwasser,
|Progression||Landwasser → Albula → Hinterrhein → Rhine → North Sea|
|Length||15 km (9.3 mi)|
|Source elevation||2,700 m (8,900 ft)|
|Mouth elevation||1,550 m (5,090 ft)|
The source Dischmabach has two equal headwaters. The one on the National Map of Switzerland is a creek without a registered name and has its headwaters in the area of the Scaletta Pass (Coordinates: ). The other headwater is called Furggabach and has its headwaters on Fuorcla Grialetsch at ( ). The confluence of the two headwaters is at Dürrboden. Then the Dischmabach flows in a northwesterly direction through the elongated and gently sloping Dischma valley and flows into the Landwasser between Davos Dorf and Davos Platz.
Within the Posterior Rhine system, the sources of Dischmabach are about 72 km from the confluence of the Anterior and Posterior Rhine. Only the headwaters Rein da Medel, Rein da Maighels and Rein da Curnera in the Vorderrhein system are further away from this confluence (about 74–76 km). Thus the Dischmabach is, in terms of length, one of the most important headwaters of the Rhine (see also sources of the Rhine).
