From La Punt, the Bus alpin runs over the Albula Pass in the summer months. Get off at the Es-cha car park stop and walk up over pastures to Fuorcla Gualdauna. Then it's more or less a  flat hike to the Es-cha hut. The Es-cha hut is a nice place to relax (or spend the night) before you start the steep descent to Zuoz.
