"La Conditoria“ mit der kleinsten Nusstorte der Welt
On this gravel bike tour you will discover the source of the Rhine – as long as you master the last few meters of altitude up to Lai da Tuma on foot. In the Maighels hut you more than deserve a refreshment.

They load the gravel bike into the Rhaetian Railway in Disentis and take it towards the Oberalp Pass to Tschamut (1645 m above sea level.M.). From here you follow the still young Rhine towards its source. First the Veloroute 3 leads you in the direction of the Oberalp Pass, in Surpalits (1831 m above sea.M level) turn onto the mountain bike route no. 205. A steep gravel road takes you into high alpine terrain and with each pedal stroke the air gets a little thinner. In Siara (2174 m above sea level.M) you have the opportunity to tackle the last 900 meters and 176 meters of altitude difference to the source of the Vorderrhein on foot. A steep and impassable path leads to the Lai da Tuma (2345 m above sea level.M.). If luck on two wheels is closer to you, follow the natural road to the Maighels Hut (2314 m above.M sea level) at Lai Urlaun. The hut is the highest point on the tributaries of the Vorderrhein, which can be reached by bike. A rest is more than deserved before you first follow the natural road and then the Oberalp pass road back to Tschamut. In Selva turn off the main road and take the Graubünden Bike Route 90 to Sedrun (1406 m above sea level.M.). Here a small detour to the village is worthwhile to strengthen yourself in "La Conditoria" with the smallest nut cake in the world. Via Surrein you reach the Muota Pigniel to the Uaul Cavorgia, which scores with its flora and a great panoramic view. The route takes you back to Disentis via Mumpé Medel. Even from a distance you can see the imposing Benedictine monastery, which has shaped the place since the 13th century.
