Description:
Randa is a municipality in the district of Visp in the canton of Valais in Switzerland. It is located between the Weisshorn and the Dom in the Matter Valley.

In 1819, the village was almost totally destroyed by the blast from a huge avalanche that fell nearby. Lane, F.W. The Elements Rage (David & Charles 1966), p. 83

In 1991, a portion of the village was flooded following a large rockslide from a cliff above the town.

The village is popular for tourists wishing to visit the area, as it is reachable by car and rail, and has a campsite which offers a taxi service to Zermatt, a car-free town. The train-line, known as the Glacier Express also connects to Zermatt offering visitors many ways to access the town.
