They sparkle in the Upper Engadin summer sun like shiny sequins on an evening gown: high up on the Furtschellas (2,313m/7,589ft), six small mountain lakes reflect the sky in their crystal-clear waters. The Water Trail follows a 2 1/2 hour circular route past the lakes towards Alp Munt, and then back again along the other side to the summit station. The breathtaking view extends across the lake plateau, deep into the valley and up again on the other side to the rocky flanks of the Corvatsch massif. Numerous vantage points invite hikers to stop and linger. At the Lejin Rhodonit (not far from the Osteria Rabgiusa, closed in summer) there is a BBQ area with wood and a metal grille for visitors' use. Tasty sausages can be purchased at the La Chüdera mountain restaurant, or if you prefer to travel light, you can enjoy delicious Graubünden specialities on the spacious sun terrace.
Hiking fun for families: enjoy the company of Herzeleide the mountain fairy and Naseweis the goblin. The water hiking trail for young explorers, with a colourful games & activity book, has an exciting tale to tell. Children receive a drink in exchange for the voucher available with the magazine.
