On foot to Alp Champatsch and by sledge back to the valley to Lü or Tschierv.
Distance 9.5 km
First the trail leads steadily uphill for about 45 minutes towards Lü. From there the tour leads through a snow-covered forest landscape to the Alp Champatsch mountain hut, where the restaurant invites you to take a rest. Of course, you can also start from Lü if you don't want to make the first climb from Tschierv. From Alp Champatsch you can either walk or, better still, sledge back to the valley in Tschierv.
