Alpine Pass Engadin Samnaun Val Müstair

Vermunt Pass

Vermuntgebiet vom Hochmadererjoch ©Stand Montafon
The Vermunt Pass was the obstacle for the shepherds of the time.

Description

In order to reach the alpine pastures of the Grossvermunt in the north of the Silvretta main ridge, one had to drive the cattle from Guarda 1650 m through the Val Tuoi at 2798 m over this pass. The fact that it was dangerous was out of the question, as both cattle and people repeatedly fell into crevasses. The hikes in this region are also a tradition. Already in the 7th millennium B.C. in the Val Tuoi, hunters stopped at a boulder and lit fires.
