The Diesrut Pass and the Greina Pass were already used crossings in the Bronze Age and especially in the Middle Ages well-known hempaths. Let yourself be surprised by the diverse flora! On the way, marmots and, with a little luck, chamois and ibex can be observed.

Stage 1: From Vrin to Capanna Scaletta

At the beginning, we walk about 3 km along the road towards the hamlets of Cons, Ligiaziun and Sogn Giusep. From Sogn Giusep a hiking trail leads up to Camplun and Puzzatsch. This section can be shortened from the end of June to the beginning of October by bus Alpin.  Reservation absolutely necessary: timetable and info.  

Now the actual ascent to the Greina begins. After a short stretch on the natural road, the path winds its way up to the Diesrut pass, past the alpine stables of the Tegia Sut. Steeper sections alternate with long ascents. Shortly after the pass, the view opens to the wide plain of the Greina with the meandering Rein da Sumvitg. After about 5 minutes, the trail turns left towards Passo della Greina. The path descends gently into the plain crossed by river arms. We continue through the Greina plain with its numerous swamps, extensive sheep pastures and the imposing mountain scenery. Depending on the weather, you will experience the most impressive light plays of sun, fog and clouds. In the area of the Passo della Greina, the yellowish-white rough-wacke towers delight, and suddenly the colours also make you feel the geological contrasts: in the north, it is the crystalline rocks of the Gotthard massif; Adjacent are the bright dolomites and roughwackes from the Triassic period and to the south the black clay slates of the Coroi series (Jura). From the pass it is only a few minutes to Capanna Scaletta.
