A spectacular insight into the Bova Gronda landslide area. T2
It is exciting to stand at the top edge of the Bova Gronda! Here, a mighty rockfall caused great devastation in 1689. It destroyed the hamlets of Brulf and Valentin and claimed 22 lives. For three hours, the landslide dammed the Rhine; fortunately, there was no flood wave.
After this break-off, the forest gradually thins out and we hike through alpine rose bushes until we arrive at the rounded crest of Alp Soliva. The view is fantastic, the glaciers of the Oberalpstock and the Tödi are flashing.
On the way again, we hike downhill past Alp Soliva, a shady forest follows and soon we see the houses of Soliva. From Curaglia the post bus takes us back to Disentis.
Let a taxi take you to Cavardiras. It shortens the tour by about 1 hour
Hiking equipment. Sticks are helpful when descending.
From Disentis station we follow the roads to Cavardiras. Here begins the forest road to Caischavedra from where a hiking trail leads to Alp Soliva. At the highest point 2178 we choose the path downhill and we pass the alpine hut. In front of the forest we continue in the same direction to Soliva. Below the chapel, the trail leads down to Curaglia.
