Tschlin, situated high above the Inn on a sunny terrace, is one of the most beautiful villages in Switzerland. From here, the hike continues along a gravel path out to Prà Grond. The trail continues across open country to the meadows of Mundaditsch always straight ahead through the forest. The path continues over a panoramic hilltop on a meadow path to Vadrain. Here you can enjoy the wonderful panorama of the Lower Engadine mountains. From the alp Vadrain a path leads via La Vota more or less along the contour line to Pra d'Arsüra below Motta Mundin (2138m). The Vadrain barbecue area is ideal for a lunch break. Now we descend steeply along a narrow path in the notorious avalanche slopes of Val Mundin. This is the most challenging part of the hike and a little concentration is required. But once at the clearing Pra da la Zipla, you can enjoy the last kilometers downhill to Vinadi.
