Day 1: We let ourselves be driven from Sedrun to the reservoir Nalps. From the parking lot above the crown of the wall, an old tank track leads along the reservoir into the valley, which dates back to times when the military still needed training grounds everywhere in the mountains. The hiking trail over the pass Nalps was marked until the nineties and we follow the old white/red markings on the left side of the stream. At first the path is clearly visible, later we continue over stone blocks and we have to cross the stream without a bridge. Depending on the season, sooner or later we reach a firn field, on which we walk with a firm step towards the pass. For the last meters of altitude we have to use our hands to climb the top of the pass on partly slippery scree and loose stones.   Our attention is now fully demanded as we continue westwards. Sometimes you can see trail tracks and from time to time also a stone man, but there are no more markings. We now hike below the Piz Blas, Piz Tanelin and Piz Curnera with a few small ups and downs to the Cadlimo hut.

Day 2: We hike downhill on the hut path. The Val Cadlimo is very rich in water, we pass wetlands or small lakes. Before point 2299 we find the junction for the white/blue marked path that leads up to Lago di Dentro. At first the path is still mixed with bush, further up it becomes stonier.  We reach a small pass from where we descend to Lago di Dentro, a jewel among the mountain lakes. In Val Piora we realize: Here is marmot land! Overlooking the extraordinary Pizzo delle Colombe, which does not seem to fit into this landscape, we climb leisurely along the Murinascia Grande until we reach the Passo dell'uomo. Here, too, the military has left its mark. On the last stretch of trail along the Lukmanier reservoir we end our hiking day. With the Postbus we drive to Disentis and by train back to Sedrun.


It is best to plan the tour in July, when it still has old snow.

Variant for the second day: From Capanna Cadagno to Lake Ritom, by funicular to Piotta and via Airolo, Göschenen, Oberalp Pass by train back to Sedrun.


The route over the Nalps Pass is not part of the hiking trail network, it is not maintained and it is not marked.


Depending on the season, it is advisable to carry a pimple, which is an ascent aid in the firn field.


From the dam wall of Nalp we always walk along the lake towards the south. At first the path is still signposted, later we find old markings and as soon as we reach the snow, we have to find the route ourselves. On the pass Nalps we continue in a westerly direction. we focus on isolated stone men and trail tracks. We hike for a while above a rock band. and we always stay at about the same level. In front of the Cadlimo hut we meet the hut entrance. On the second day we follow the hut path downhill to the junction to Lago di Dentro. Now the path to the lake is marked white/blue, then white/red again when we descend to the Cadagno hut. From here we choose the trail that leads to the left of the stream to the Passo dell'uomo. On the pass you continue in the same direction. First on a stony military road down to the reservoir Santa Maria, then turn right along the lake on a comfortable road.
