The Pischa Route is a demanding single-trail tour high above the Flüela valley with wonderful views. It demands stamina and good technical skills in equal measure. However the single trails do ensure a great overall flow.
From the Tourism and Sports Centre at Davos Platz the route initially takes us in the direction of Davos Dorf. At the entrance to the Dischma valley the track leads up to the Büelen, where a road leads through the forest directly into the Flüela valley. The slightly uphill single trail that follows, running parallel to the Flüelabach stream, quickly takes us to Tschuggen. Caution: Take care when crossing the busy pass road! At the small church on Tschuggen the trail rises steeply, ushering in a tough section where we need to gain altitude. Shortly before the mountain station the trail becomes a road and the climb easier. From the mountain station (which operates in winter only) a tricky but fun single trail follows the ridge, opening up wonderful views of the mountain scenery all around. Before the last tough section up to the Hüreli the trail branches off to the right, flowing wonderfully across mountain meadows in the direction of Drusatscha. We still need to negotiate one or two difficult sections before we finally reach the Alp Drusatscha. We finish off with yet another single trail directly to the lake of Davos, where the hospitality of the VonSprecherhaus is the perfect place to stop and go over the excitement of the whole tour
