Details

Description

The Geology Trail is an educational hike that reveals how the dinosaur tracks came to be on Piz S-chalambert, why the «Lower Engadine Window» is visited by geologists from all over the world and much more about the structure, history and formation of the mountains around Motta Naluns. At 5 locations, artistic illustration panels direct the viewer's gaze to the real mountains. The coloured areas indicate rock types and phenomena that can be deciphered with the help of a QR code. As an alternative to the digital solution, a brochure is available at the ticket office of the mountain railways.
