Well-developed and popular high-altitude trail with ever-changing insights and views into the Prättigau. The path first leads comfortably past the Three Towers and the mighty Drusenfluh. Then the long-distance hike leads downhill to a spring below the Schweizertor. Along the Kirchlispitzen the path rises again into the heights. On the Cavelljoch you stand directly on the Austrian border and enjoy a beautiful view of the Lünersee. At the end of this stage, a path leads via Golrosa to Fadurer Fürggli and then through the eastern flank of the Sassauna to Eggli. The cosy Sassauna mountain restaurant awaits you here. The Fanas cable car will then take you back down to the valley.
