Tschlin is located on a sun terrace at 1,550 m above sea level. The tour starts at the entrance to the village at the Postbus stop, already from there you have a beautiful view of the opposite side of the valley with Piz Lad, Piz Nair, Piz Schalabert, Piz Ajüz and up to Piz Lischana. At the first well at the entrance to the village we turn left and follow the forest road for 1.6 km. The slope is even and the view of the opposite side of the valley and the typical terraced landscape outside the village is spectacular. Shortly before the fireplace at point 1656 we take the path to the right towards Palü Plajazan. Here it gets steeper and we turn (always following the marked path) to the left where a beautiful and narrowing rooty path begins. On the way, a bear actually greets us. After some narrow hairpin bends we reach a forest road, here we turn right and soon reach the highest point of the route at Plajazin with some beautifully located hunting lodges. From here you can see the mountain peaks. From here it is only downhill. We follow the marked hiking trail (and not the forest road) towards Tschlin everything through the light coniferous forest. The last part takes us through the typical Engadine village of Tschlin. Right at the entrance to the village we reach the Girun brewery. We follow the road through the village, past several village fountains with fresh spring water, and soon reach our starting point. Shortly before the end is the restaurant Macun where you can taste 2 different mountain beers brewed in the municipality of Valsot.
