The hike to Chamanna Cluozza is one of the classics among the tours in the national park. On the way, highlights of the low view into the Cluozza Gorge, chamois, deer, the panorama and at the finish the Chamanna Cluozza itself await. Originally built as a house for the first parking attendant, the cottage now can accommodate 63 people. Far from any human influence, an overnight stay in the magnificent accommodation, comparable to the standard with an SAC hut, beckons. Make an early reservation (online at! A hike to the Chamanna Cluozza can be combined with an ascent of the Piz Quatterval, a tour over the Murtersattel to the Ofenpassstrasse at the Vallun Chafuol/P3 post bus stop or via the Fuorcla Val Sassa into Val Trupchun (see corresponding routes).

Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park not, even on a leash. For more information and all protections, see

From Zernez station (1474 m above sea.M level) through the village eastwards towards the Ofenpass and on the covered wooden bridge over the Spöl. From here two variants: The western path leads after a piece of tarred road on a dirt road towards the forest, turns sharply to the east and then gradually rises. The eastern path leads on a cart path through meadows into a larch forest, rises steeply and finally meets the dirt road described above. From here to the east to the Sarasinstein, located on the edge of the Cluozza Gorge, which is dedicated to one of the founding personalities of the Swiss National Park. The path zigzags to Il Pra. There follows the turnoff to the south. The path runs along the partly steep eastern slope of the Murtaröl ridge through extensive pine fields. After a small fountain, the trail reaches the highest point of the tour, on a green ground (2100 m above sea level.M), which offers a beautiful view of the Val Cluozza and the southern slopes of the Terza chain. Chamois, deer and ibex often appear there, especially in the evening light. The path now leads downhill, with some sloping spots, and reaches the Ova da Cluozza via the meadow Il Grass. This is crossed on a bridge, then the path leads uphill again, and reaches the Chamanna Cluozza (1882 m above sea level.M. after 80 meters of altitude.
