Once you have crossed the road over the Julier Pass, the wide valley opens up before you. High above St. Moritz the route continues along the high-alpine trail along Piz Padella to Alp Muntatsch. Take a short break, then set off on the final leg along the trail to the unspoilt village of Samedan, which is now not far away.
After crossing the road over the Julier Pass, you are soon rewarded with the unique views across the expanses of the Upper Engadine valley, with St. Moritz in the foreground. Then, after the ascent to the Corviglia, past the deep blue waters of Lej Alv, you will reach the alpine trail of Munt da la Bês-cha along Piz Padella. Tradition is a big part of life on Alp Muntatsch, but, after a short rest in the alpine landscape to recoup your strength, it’s time to tackle the descent to the unspoilt village of Samedan.
Best time of year
