The tour leads over 21 km and 1000 metres of depth through the entire valley. It starts at the Ofenpass summit Süsom Givè, which can also be reached by post bus. Bikes are transported. Up to Alp da Munt, in the heart of the Minschuns ski area, some pedal power is still required. Then follows one of the most beautiful single trails in the region, winding through moorland and past stone pines/larches.

From Alp Champatsch, where you can stop for a bite to eat, the trail continues through the forest to the village of Lü. From there the tour leads on single trails to Müstair. A few narrow hairpin bends await you in the last section to the Müstair monastery. The tour can also be ended beforehand in one of the other villages. Local bikers have voluntarily upgraded various sections of the tour to provide a continuous trail experience.

By the way, this tour ends at the house in Müstair, where Danny MacAskill jumped a frontflip in the film «Home of Trails». Discover the house in Müstair

Sehr schöne Tour. Nach dem Aufstieg am Anfang, von Lü bis nach Müstair Single-Trail. Nachtrag: Das zweite Mal sind wir bei der Alp Champatsch rechts weg, Richtung Tschierv. Das ein ganz schönes Single Trail, welcher einem kurz vor Lü wieder auf die eigentliche Route bringt. Umbedingt machen.

Das Postauto im Val Müstair nimmt Bikes mit. Kommst also zurück - Voranmeldung in dieser Jahreszeit ist sicher gut. Würde übrigens empfehlen, ab Fuldera ganz dem "Rombach-Trail", Single-Trail entlang des rechten Ufers, zu fahren - ist super schön (ohne allerdings die offizielle Route gefahren zu sein...)
