From the Alp Trider saddle you climb the path in about 30 minutes to Piz Munschuns, where a fantastic view of the Samnaun valley and the ski area awaits you. Then the steep descent begins over the flowering alpine meadows of Urezza da Tea and past the Alpstein, one of the largest erratic blocks in Switzerland, to Samnaun-Compatsch. Alternatively, you can also hike from Piz Munschuns back to the Alp Trider saddle and from there via the alp road to Samnaun-Compatsch.
