From the PostBus stop, you will pass through the well-kept and beautifully located Engadinerdorf Tschlin. At the village exit, turn left in front of the church. On the forest road you can climb the first meters of altitude. At the height of the forest boundary, the path changes over the incision Val Sot to the grass flank further east. From this level, the path rises steadily and the meadows gradually turn into rock. Early in the ascent, the clear incision of the Fuorcla Salet can be seen on the horizon.  This saddle lies between the Piz Salet and the slightly higher Piz Malmurainza. The Fuorcla Salet is the highest point of the hike. Before the descent, one enjoys the far-sightedness over the Lower Engadine once again. Directly opposite the Fuorcla rises the Piz Lad, at whose foot (where the bush forest turns into rock) lies the three-country point Switzerland/Italy/Austria. The descent leads first through a boulder field. Via the Munt da Plaz you finally reach the creek at the bottom in the Val Sampuoir and cross it at the same time. Following the course of the river, one soon meets an alpine road, which you soon reach into the forest and finally to the hamlet of Acla da Fans on the Samnaunerstrasse. From Acla da fans drive PostAutos every 2nd hour (see timetable!) to Samnaun or via Martina to Scuol.
