In a few minutes you can take the cable car from Surlej (please note the operating hours) over tree tops and alpine meadows to the middle station of the Corvatsch cable car. Those who do not want to miss the trip up to the fabulous 3303 metres high glacier mountain Piz Corvatsch, change to the cablecar of the second section and go heavenwards directly to the panorama restaurant on the summit. The visit to the top 3000 will surely remain in best memory. After a refreshment, overwhelmed by the breathtaking view, one comfortably floats back to the middle station. From there, you continue on foot downhill. While snow sports enthusiasts enjoy themselves here in winter, in summer hikers are delighted by the view over the Upper Engadin lake landscape. Along the slope, high above Lake Silvaplana, the path leads to Prugnieu and from there through the fragrant mountain forest to Alp Prasüra, from where Sils is easily accessible on various paths.

Instead of walking down to Sils, you can also take the Furtschellas gondola.
