Sunny final stage of the regional bike route 442 The terraced landscapes between Ramosch and Tschlin bear witness to the former importance of agriculture. Through Tschlin, situated high above the Inn, you reach the serviced Alp Tea and a rapid descent takes you down to Martina on the national border.
After the start in the historically important village of Ramosch, the route takes you steadily and steeply uphill, always with the castle ruins of Tschanüff behind you, to the flat "Motta". Here it is worth taking a short breather with views of Tschlin and neighbouring Austria to the east, to the south into the wild Val d'Assa and Val d'Uina, and to the west via Ramosch toward Scuol and Sent to the Lower Engadine Dolomites. The terraced slopes around the Motta area still bear witness to the former grain cultivation in this dry region and motivated settlers in the Bronze and Iron Ages to settle here. The subsequent descent to Seraplana is relaxing, prior to the long climb to Tschlin and on to Alp Tea, which makes great physical demands. Once above the tree line, it is advisable to stop off at Alp Tea in the summer for well-deserved refreshments before the last descent to Martina.
Alp Tea is serviced in summer. The detour for a break with views into the distance and refreshments is definitely worthwhile.
You can return from Martina to Ramosch either by PostBus (every hour) or by mountain bike.
