Engadin St. Moritz Tourismus AG planned a hike.
April 14, 2021
On the last stage of the Bernina Tour, you take the mountain railway up to the Murtèl middle station in the morning. From there it is initially steep and then becoming flatter downhill. You cross the slopes to Alp Prasüra and slowly advance into a new landscape. It is getting greener and greener and the Upper Engadine lakes spread out down in the valley.From the alp there is one last steep descent into the valley to Sils. You cross the village and now walk on the Via Engiadina high trail above Lake Sils. Beautiful paths lead you across meadows and through forests, in between it gets a bit rocky every now and then.Behind the steep slopes on the eastern north shore of the lake it is a little flatter and slightly hilly. Here you pass the two mountain pastures Grevasalvas and Blaunca with their typical stone houses. A final steep descent finally brings you down to Maloja, where your long-distance hike through the impressive landscapes around the Bernina ends.
