The hike starts from Ardez with a detour to the Catholic church. The trail then continues towards Tarasp and at the next turn-off below the church it heads towards Sur En (d'Ardez). Sur En is a hamlet that belongs to Ardez. This place served as the main setting for the Schellen-Ursli film (2015). From the small Engadine village with its own church, the trail leads through the forest towards Nuna and then down over the Inn to Giarsun. Giarsun enchants with a few beautiful Engadine houses.
