Description

From the former mining settlement of S-charl, where silver and lead were once mined, the rather short and sometimes steep hike leads up to Mot Madlain. Here you can enjoy a magnificent view of the surrounding valleys such as Val Tavrü and Val S-charl. In summer, you can admire the varied flora with groups of edelweiss.

Directions

From the summer village of S-charl, at the bridge at the entrance to the village, the path leads in the direction of Ils Chomps, gently ascending through the forest. On the way we pass the remains of a mine. Towards the tree line, the hike eventually climbs quite steeply, before it becomes flatter again on the last stretch to Mot Madlain. We descend along the same path to S-charl.

Public Transport

  • By Rhaetian Railway (from Chur, Landquart/Prättigau or from the Upper Engadine) hourly to Scuol-Tarasp station.
  • By PostBus (from Martina, Sent, Ftan or Tarasp) hourly service to Scuol-Tarasp station.
  • Continue by PostBus with hourly connection to the PostBus stop S-charl
