Start of the hike is above Ramosch at the road to Vnà. A trail follows to Sinestra with a constant view into the deep Brancla gorge.

In Sinestra you can take the PostBus to Sent and Scuol.

Author’s recommendation

  • Shortly before Sinestra, a trail also leads up to Vnà - a dreamy jewel in the middle of nature.
  • Once in Sinestra, you can also continue hiking over the suspension bridges to Zuort and on to Griosch and all the way to Vnà.
