On this hiking-trail discover the formidable power avalanches; enjoy the quiet paths and distant views into the Oberhalbstein and Engadin.

The route passes through the idyllic village Lantsch/Lenz down towards the restaurant Tgoma and then onto the end of the asphalt road. Following a steep climb through the woods you come to Val Meltger hanging-bridge. Here avalanches annually ripped the old bridges away, demonstrating just how much power they have. The solution to this problem is the hanging-bridge which is now suspended 12 metres above the ground. The tour continues on towards a lonely Alp hut. Taking a break here is ideal; a majestic view opens towards Savognin, the Julierpass and into the Engadin. The descent drops mostly through woodland, but don't miss the side tour to the romantic lake Lai la Villa. A thirst-quenching drink from the spring refreshes you before you make your way back to Lantsch/Lenz.
