The starting point of the tour is the village center Lenzerheide. From there, take the forest trail towards the Sanaspans waterfall. Linger at the beautiful fireplace or visit the waterfall. Continue to the mountain restaurant Scharmoin and the Scharmoin Alp, where the cows of the local farmers stay during summer. On the panoramic path to the Oberberg, you will enjoy the wonderful view. Go to the Bergbeizli (http://www.bergbeizli-parpan.ch/) or the Tschugga restaurant (http://www.restaurant-tschugga.com/) before returning to Parpan and from Valbella to Lenzerheide
