Description

The starting point of the first stage is the small Engadine village of S-charl. This place can be reached in winter only by horse-drawn carriage, which shuttles daily between Scuol and S-charl. The route starts at the Mayor inn. Shortly after leaving the village, it goes parallel to the course of the Clemgia river, always slightly ascending towards the south. In the course of the route you pass the Alp Astras and the God da Tamangur, the highest continuous Swiss stone pine forest in Europe at 2,300 m above sea level, before reaching the highest point of the day, the Pass da Costainas. Afterwards, the descent takes place past Alp Champatsch to the small village of Lü in Val Müstair, the end point of this tour.

 

The second stage starts in the small village of Lü in Val Müstair. From the western end of the village, an alpine pasture path leads on a pleasant incline in the direction of Alp Champatsch. The alp lies a bit to the west in the wide valley basin at the foot of the Pass da Costainas. It is managed in winter and is a good place for wildlife watching. After the hut we leave the winter hiking trail and head north on the eastern flank of the Minschun. We then continue over the Fuorcla Funtana da S-charl to the Alp da Munt, a serviced hut in the small ski area of Val Müstair. From here, the route continues westwards, always at the same altitude, in the direction of the Ofen Pass. At Plaun dals Bovs you have to cross the Ofenpass road and follow the winter hiking trail to Hotel Süsom Give. The small final climb takes about 20 minutes.
