Description

This section of the route is the "wildest" of the long-distance hike. Although Lafet and Balnettis are beautiful, traditional Maiensässe and you pass mountain meadows, you are often in wild gorges. The path here is little done and is not part of alpine access as on other parts of the route. It seems all the more astonishing when you suddenly meet farmers who are hay- again. The meadows are very high and steep and the access from the valley also leads over extremely steep roads, which are now replaced by the – of course sensible – melioration roads.

Geheimtipp

Very motivated and sporty hikers take the detour over the Montalin (local mountain of Chur)

Sicherheitshinweis

In case of rain and especially thunderstorms, the tobels must be passed with increased caution.

Basicalally, in bad weather, it is good to consider whether you want to walk the route, as it is not harmless.
