The starting point of the hike is the centre of Silvaplana or the valley station of the Corvatsch cable car in Surlej. The trail leads over the Alp Surlej to the Murtèl middle station, where you can have a meal in the restaurant and enjoy the view of the Upper Engadin lake landscape. The view point is just below the middle station. To save metres in altitude, you can shorten the hike and take the cable car for the ascent or descent.
