From the mountain station of the Fanas cable car you can reach the first peak, Sassauna (2307 m), via the rather steep southern flank. The panorama rewards for the first effort. On the one hand, the sizes of the Rätikon - Schesaplana, Drusenfluh, Sulzfluh - are vis-à-vis, while on the other side you overlook the vastness of the Prättigau.  Now you leave the marked mountain hiking trails and follow the ridge line (T4) in the pathless terrain.  Here comes the key point of this tour - sure-footedness is required. Suspended passages require a few steps from time to time, but those who master the section to the Pfäwi can enjoy the rest. Now the peaks of Lägend-, Tüf- and Hoch- Sagettis are collected before you cross the hiking trail on the Fadurer Fürggli. Via the steep but easily accessible ridge you reach the highest point of this tour, the Girenspitz.  The spectacular view makes you pause before you take the descent to the Hochstelli and then steeply down to the marked mountain trail under your feet. The red and white path leads to the Schuderser Maiensäss and from there over the road to Schuders. From there, the Postbus drives over the famous Salginatobel Bridge back to the valley. 


Option 1: If the ridge line is too demanding for you or the bad conditions do not allow this, you can cross the Fadurer Kessel at an altitude of around 2000 m on white-red marked mountain hiking trails.  To the route description

Option 2: From fadurer Fürggli you reach the Prättigauer Höhenweg via the saddle of Golrosa, which leads to the Schesaplanahütte, which offers an excellent starting point for further alpine hikes. approx. 2 hours from Fadurer Fürggli, T2


With the cable car Fanas you can easily overcome the first meters of altitude.
In the Berghaus Sassauna enjoy a Znüni-Kafi and the view before it starts freshly strengthened.


The trail is classified as T4 to T5 (challenging alpine hiking) according to hiking scale SAC. The ridge from Sassauna to Höchstelli is not marked. 
The key point between Sassauna and Pfäwi is to be assessed as T5, the overgrown ridge as T4.

Path / Terrain: Often pathless, in certain places it takes the hands to move forward, individual simple climbing points. Exposed, challenging terrain, delicate grass heaps, schrofen.

Requirement: Mountain boots. Safe terrain assessment and very good orientation skills. Good alpine experience.  


Sturdy mountain boots, mountain hiking clothing adapted to the season. An up-to-date hiking map in your backpack is just as advisable as sun, rain and heat protection, water bottle and tour provisions. Touring poles increase sure-footedness and relieve the joints. For emergencies: first aid kit, rescue blanket, mobile phone. In addition, compass and altimeter may be recommended.
