This long tour leads you through pristine alpine scenery which is rather far away from civilisation.
Distance 24.6 km
You start at the village square of Chamues-ch, the trail leads you on the gravel road into the Val Chamuera. In the center of the valley at 2'16 m above sea level, you find an astonishing building. This was the most important alpine farm hut of the Canton of Grisons built in the 19th century. Originally a dairy, it was inhabited in winter, too, until 1836. Here you make a sharp left turn. After the Alp Timun you take the steep ascent to the Fuorcla Chaschauna up at 2'802 m. On the other side of the pass, the occasionally very steep descent into the Val Chaschauna begins. Past the Alp Chaschauna, you follow the gravel road that leads to S-chanf. Just befor the bridge Punt da Scrin you take the narrow hiking path that leads above the river to the Prasüras parking area.
The rocks around the Fuorcla Chaschauna provide a habitat for ibex and chamois. Golden eagles and bearded vultures also like to circle in the sky.
