From the centre of Guarda, the trail follows the course of the Clozza stream to Alp Suot above the timberline and further into the valley to the foot of the mighty Piz Buin and Chamanna Tuoi SAC (overnight accommodation). From Chamanna Tuoi, the alpine hiking trail leads eastwards in the wide valley basin on the southern edge of the Silvretta group to the highest point of the tour, the Pass da Furcletta (2732 metres altitude). From this pass the view opens up into Val d'Urezzas on the other side of the saddle. The descent is very steep at first and up to Marangun d'Urezzas, but becomes flatter and flatter the further you advance into Val Tasna and the narrow valley at Alp Valmala.
