At Resgia in Zuoz, a good hiking trail zigzags up towards Munt Seja. The path becomes narrower and narrower and above the forest line you are rewarded with spectacular views of the villages of La Plaiv and the breathtaking mountain world with the Piz Kesch (3418 m above sea level). You deserve a rest at the little mountain lake Lej da Prastinaun. The hiking trail leads through the Val Granda to Alp Arpiglia. From the alp, which is managed in summer, you hike comfortably along the gravel road back to the starting point.

Author’s recommendation

At the beginning of the tour, you can also take the path along the waterfall. Depending on the weather, however, the path can be slippery.
