The Tamins Rock Avalanche, which occurred more than 9500 years before present, dammed a lake which was then impacted by the Flims Rock Slide, the largest known mass movement in the Alps. Lake water and the valley fill spilled over the deposit of the Tamins Rock Avalanche, transporting rock slide fragments as far as to today's village of Domat, where they form so-called toma hills.
