The tour starts in the Engadine village of Sent in an easterly direction. Via a scenic field road you leave the village in the direction of Val Sinestra. The path then continues almost without a gradient to the turnaround point of the Val Sinestra spa hotel. In summer, a post bus connection also brings us to the valley. After crossing the Brancla, the valley stream of Val Sinestra, you reach the road to Vnà through the forest. Following this road we soon see the houses of the small village of Vnà. In the village there are places to stop and spend the night.From Vnà the path climbs again slightly and turns into a path. Across a sparse forest and meadow landscape you reach the two former hamlets of Chant Sura and Chant Dadaint. The path now climbs a bit more before it then descends steeply into the Val Ruinains. On a very scenic path we bring the last part of the way behind us and arrive in Tschlin, situated high above the valley floor. There are refreshment facilities and a post bus connection via Martina back to the starting point Sent or further to Scuol.

Questions and answers

Question from Regula Aeppli · August 19, 2021 · Community
Guten Tag, 5 Stunden Wanderzeit dünkt mich etwas viel. Kann man diese Etappe irgendwo abkürzen - beenden und mit dem Postauto zurück fahren?
