Ascent via Champosch and Vallatscha to Alp Laisch. From here, the route continues into Val Plavna, now somewhat flatter, to Alp Plavna. The plain near Pradatsch, also called "la Sahara", has its very own charm. The stream is often not visible here under the scree - you can only hear it rushing underneath you.

On the way back, keep to the right just before Alp Laisch and follow the flowing trail along the Plavna stream back to Tarasp.

Author’s recommendation

The alp Plavna is open for visitors. To find out if the alp is open, call: +41 81 861 88 00.
