Well-developed and well-liked high-altitude trail, with ever-changing views of the Prättigau. The trail first leads comfortably past the Three Towers and the mighty Drusenfluh. Afterwards, the long hike leads a little downhill to a spring below the Swiss Gate. Along the Kirchlispitze, the path rises again. On the Cavelljoch you stand directly at the Austrian border and enjoy a beautiful view of lake Lünersee. At the end of this stage, a path leads via Golrosa to the Fadurer Fürggli, and then through the eastern flank of the Sassauna to eggli. The cosy mountain restaurant Sassauna awaits you here. The Fanas cable car will take you back to the valley.
