The starting point is at the Engadine village of Sent or at the Val Sinestra spa hotel. Both starting points can be reached by public transport. From Sent you walk the first six kilometres on a forest road, without much of an ascent, to the Val Sinestra spa hotel. Below the mighty Kurhaus you cross the Brancla for the first time. In the forest you follow the stream uphill and cross two suspension bridges. The valley then opens up and you reach the Hof Zuort guesthouse and restaurant.

The forest turns into pastureland and you reach the Griosch cluster of houses. The Tanna da Muntanella restaurant is at the turning point of the hike. From there, you do not continue into the valley, but walk along the newly constructed hiking trail on the edge of the meadows and woods above the forest road in the direction of Vnà. After about five kilometres, you reach the hamlet of Vnà. 

The trail can also be followed in the opposite direction from Vnà.

Author’s recommendation

In 2011, the Val Sinestra was awarded the title of «Landscape of the Year» by the Foundation for the Protection of the Swiss Landscape SL.

Für uns war es ein schönes Wandererlebnis. Der Weg war teilweise etwas beschwerlich. Aber die beiden Hängebrücken haben uns entschädigt.

Sehr empfehlenswerte Wanderung. Sehr abwechslungsreich. Malerische Dörfer, aussichtsreiche und größtenteils nur leicht ansteigende Wege.
