From the mountain station of the chairlift, the path leads westwards below the Prui mountain restaurant. Through a sparse forest, the first 150 meters of altitude are mastered.
Gently ascending, with the mighty Lower Engadine Dolomites in view, it then goes to Alp Laret. Alp Laret, which offers great views, is only open during the summer seasons. Just behind Alp Laret, the descent into Val Tasna begins. Soon you can see the roofs of Alp Valmala on the other side of the valley.
Before crossing the Tasnan, it is recommended, especially for those interested in history, to make a detour to Alp Urezzas. At Plan d'Agl you finally cross the Tasnan, from now on you are on Ardez soil. In a north-westerly direction, the Val d'Urschai leads to the Futschölpass, the border crossing to the neighbouring Montafon.
At the entrance to this valley, where the large boulders can be seen, there are sites that prove that this crossing was already used by hunters over 10,000 years ago. Continuing in the direction of Alp Urezzas near Plan d'Agl, if you look closely, you can still see the outline of an old cattle pen that stood there over 2,500 years ago. The Urezzas mountain hut is a bit more recent, it was built in 1832 and has been steadily expanded over the past century. The path leads steadily down the valley past Alp Valmala. In the summer months, you can buy goat cheese or a small refreshment.
The rest of the way leads along the Tasnan, whose water is now also used for electricity production, comfortably down to Ardez.


The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be observed before the start of the tour. This hike requires an elementary alpine experience, orientation skills. Trekking shoes are recommended.
