Hoch über Ftan: Piz Clünas – Alp LaretPhoto: Niculin Meyer, Engadin Samnaun Val Müstair
Here the summit ascent begins over the south ridge to Piz Clünas. The view back shows the majestic peaks of the Sesvenna (Ajüz, Lischana, San Jon) and Pisoc groups, toward the east the facilities of the winter sports area can be seen, and behind the saddle between Piz Nair and Champatsch the striking Piz Tschütta appears. After crossing the summit, you descend to Lai da Minschun cirque lake and then follow the signs toward Alp Laret to the west via Muot da l'Hom. Here we recommend taking a break at the restaurant on Alp Laret.
Below Alp Laret, before reaching Clüs, turn left, leave the forest road and descend through the forest toward Ftan Grond. The descent from Alp Laret can alternatively be made via Prui followed by a chairlift ride to Ftan.
Alternatives: The ascent from Ftan to Prui can also be done on foot (about 300 meters of altitude difference) Alternatively, you can start the hike in Scuol, take the cable car to Motta Naluns and after a one and a half hour ascent you will reach Alp Clünas. There is also the possibility of doing the tour the other way round and to descend from Alp Clünas to the top station of the cable car Motta Naluns. From here you can take the gondola lift or the scooters, which are available for hire on site, back to Scuol.
