During a snowy winter "Runda da Tschern" is a paradise. The silence of nature is the perfect way to relax from stressful everyday life.

From the PostBus stop Sent Plaz, the route leads toward Sinestra to the last houses of Sent. At the end of the village, turn right onto the natural road and follow it. The road is level at the beginning. Shortly before the forest begins, you reach a big fir tree. A second alpine road leads towards Sent. The path now continues upwards. After the ascent, you once again reach the road to Sinestra. You follow the road in this direction for about 300 metres until you reach the edge of the forest. Here you turn left onto the road toward Sent (west). Soon the church tower of Sent comes into view again. Follow the road back to Sent.
