Details

Description

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