Panoramic hike on the old route from Scuol to Sent. Wonderful views over Scuol and part of the Lower Engadine. The circuit can be walked in both directions.

From the bus stop Scuol, Clozza you walk up to the hospital, where the main road is crossed by a small bridge. You will find the first signpost here, which leads us towards Chauennas and Sent. The path climbs steadily towards the proud Engadine village of Sent with its striking church spire.  At the crossroads of the natural road, just before Sent, we follow it toward Vastur. At a 180-degree bend, the path returns to Scuol according to the signpost. The panorama of the Lower Engadine mountain world accompanies us downhill, until we reach the hospital again.

Author’s recommendation

Sent, with its striking church spire, Engadine houses with sgraffito and numerous village fountains, is considered a «picture book village» and is perfect for a tour.
