With views of the mountain panorama from the Motta Naluns plateau, the path leads over Fuorcla Champatsch through the beautiful Val Sinestra, famous for its mineral springs, to Vnà.
Distance 18 km
You initially take a leisurely ride by the Motta Naluns cable car up to 2146 metres above sea level. The actual hike begins at the top station Motta Naluns. At first the path is quite steep and leads toward Chamonna Naluns. At the first crossing you follow the signpost toward "Fuorcla Champatsch". Once you have reached the Fuorcla, a wonderful view of the Engadine mountain world opens up. On the right you see the magical Piz Champatsch and on the left Piz Tasna, which is the highest mountain in the Sent region. Straight ahead Piz Tschütta towers, one of the very impressive 3000m peaks in the Lower Engadine. The hike continues down into Val Laver, to Alp prà San Flurin. In summer the alp is serviced. Continue along the natural road past beautiful meadows and grazing horses. You then reach a forest where the path continues straight on and soon leads downhill with many bends into Val Sinestra. Following the valley you pass Zuort and finally reach Vnà.
Rest and stop for a break in Val Sinestra at the Zuort farm.
