Details

Description

The striking, wild and intact natural landscape on the eastern edge of the national park impresses from the beginning of the tour.  The tour connects the Lower Engadine capital Scuol with the upper Val Müstair via the shortest and probably most attractive route. Through the impressive Val S-charl past the picturesque miners' village from the time of ore mining, it goes to the highest pine forest in Europe and on over the Pass da Costainas into Val Müstair. The tour through the Val S-charl and over the Pass da Costainas is characterized by a unique and intact natural and cultural landscape along a mountain stream, through sparse larch, pine and pine forests, in the middle of attractive Alps and rugged three-thousanders. In the hamlets of S-charl and Lü it is worth taking a break.
