Destination

Prazif

Turn-by-turn directions

At Chant Sura, follow the summer road further up instead of following Via Engiadina straight on.

Continue along the road until you reach a fork. A path continues up to Alp Discholas. But we continue to follow the path in the direction of Vnà.

Now follows a rather flat part of the tour.

At the next junction, "Palapan", you can admire the beautiful Lower Engadine mountains.

Afterwards, the trail continues to descend gently.

The path winds through the quiet forest until you reach a clearing.

Here is Prazif, where the regular snowshoe route along the Via Engiadina also reaches its end point.

The trail then continues according to the Ramosch - Tulai - Vnà - Ramosch snowshoe route to Vnà and on to Ramosch.
