Details

Description

After the start in S-charl, the path leads steadily uphill to Val Sesvenna. Shortly after Alp Sesvenna, the path branches off to the left and is followed by a steep, alpine (sure-footedness required) ascent through the Fora da l'aua to the wide lake district of Lais da Rims. The lunar landscape in the middle of the rough three-thousanders of the Sesvenna Group is recommended for a photo break. The chance to meet ibexes of the Sesvenna colony here is great. From the saddle "Fuorcla da Rims" (P. 2862) the Piz Lischana (3105 m above sea.M level) can be reached on an unmarked path along the southeast ridge. For the return, the same path is taken to the saddle. From here the descent leads north to the visited Lischana hut (SAC, 2500 m above sea.M level) and steeply through the Legföhren and later through the dense forest in Val Lischana to San Jon (1465 m.M above sea level, PostBus stop, restaurant) or Scuol (1198 m above sea level.M).

Variant
Alternatively, the Piz Lischana can be tackled from / to Scuol. Here you have to cope with a few more meters of altitude in the ascent.
