This is a good opportunity to discover the fascinating region around the Maloja Pass. The village of Sils is the easternmost point of the circular hike and offers many refreshment options. From here you could also take the scheduled boat for a pleasant return trip to Maloja, thus shortening the effort of the hike by half.

It is best to leave the car in the parking lot after the village of Maloja, where the main road leads to the shore of the large Läg da Segl and then leads along the lake to St. Moritz. From the car park you go left up the path that leads to a bend, then
crosses the slope to the west and offers beautiful views of the Pizzo Badile and the mountains of the Bergell. At the fork in the road, turn right and cross the slope until you reach the plain and the village of Blaunca (2037 m). You follow the small road past the beautiful houses and after a descent you come to a second village in the middle of wonderful pastures: Grevasalvas. From this
point it goes up again on a path below a rocky outcrop, you come to a junction with the variant to Lago del Lunghin and reach a small hill on the right; from here begins a long diagonal crossing downwards, with beautiful views of the lake. At the next junction keep right and reach the main road of the Engadine exactly at the intersection of Sils Baselgia. You walk on the road between the typical Engadine houses, but it is advisable to take the path to the right to the westernmost part of the lake, then you walk along the small road on the south side of the lake. Here you can also return to Maloja with the highest scheduled boat line in Europe. On foot, on the other hand, you continue until the narrow road becomes a path with ups and downs, then you reach Isola, which lies in the middle of a wide meadow that narrows the banks of the Läg da Segl. The way back to Maloja is on the road that leads to this village and, if possible, on the waterfront path.
