Almost three kilometers of hiking happiness await you on this round trip, you just have to put on your hiking shoes. It starts at the Waldhotel in Davos.In memory of the important literary figure Thomas Mann, a path named after him was realized. The path connects the main locations of his novel "The Magic Mountain". With the amendment, Davos has secured a place in world literature, which has also contributed to the high profile of the spa and holiday resort. Even today, many people interested in culture come to Davos to follow the trail of the literary figure.Along the way up to the Schatzalp you will find ten panels that, as "literary stations", show the references to Thomas Mann's work in Davos. For example, you pass the “favorite place of Hans Castorps”, the hero of the novel, and end at Thomas-Mann-Platz on the Schatzalp, which was created behind the Alpinum Schatzalp botanical garden. At the end you can have a good time with coffee and cake on the alp and maybe browse through a Thomas Mann novel.

Several hiking trails meet here and your gaze wanders down into the idyllic valley of the Ova d'Es-cha stream.
       
      Then it goes parallel to the pass road to the Albula Pass, which is also popular with cyclists. An absolute highlight of this stage is Lake Lai da Palpuogna, which was voted “The most beautiful place in Switzerland” on Swiss television. On the larch-lined bank you can take a break at the picnic areas.
       
      From the Lai da Palpuogna, the Kesch trek alternately leads through calm forests and across wide meadows.

      The third stage is the most adventurous and promising section of the Kesch Trek. Once you've fallen asleep you start the day with a magnificent view of the Porchabella Glacier. In zigzag you first walk down to Alp digl Chant. Here you can taste homemade products such as yoghurt, mountain cheese and milk.
       
      After a little refreshment you follow the course of the stream Avada Plazbi. After about seven kilometers follows the demanding ascent to Fuorcola Pischa. For the rocky mountain trail you should bring sure-footedness. The further up you go, the miserable the landscape becomes. The pass Fuorcola Pischa lies at over 2,800 meters and represents the highest point of the Kesch Trek.
       
      After a deserved break at the pass, you follow the trail over to the Es-cha Hut, your destination today. The rustic hut awaits you with Swiss delicacies and a cozy sun terrace. You can end the day with a fantastic view of the peaks of the Bernina Group.

      The second stage starts with the descent down to the Dischmabach. Countless branched brooks and small lakes line the path and supply the lush green meadows with water. From the valley, the Kesch Trek winds over partly steep scree fields to the Scaletta Pass. Here, surefootedness and attention are required. Once you arrive at the top you will see an impressive panorama and a refuge.In the constant alternation of up and down you follow the trail over pastures and rocky lunar landscapes. After about ten kilometers you will come to a crossroads where you can turn right to the beautiful Ravais-ch lakes. The detour to the two waters against the backdrop of the mighty Piz Ducan is absolutely worthwhile.The last section provides a short climb before you reach your milestones: Built in 2001 Keschhütte is considered as a showcase project in the Alpine region because of their energy concept and has already been awarded various prizes. At sunset you can enjoy a unique and colorful view of Piz Kesch and Piz Ela.
