High above the Bündner Rheintal - Valzein circular route
Beautiful, easy alpine hike (T4) in the solitude of the easily accessible Valzeina Valley. On the way over the rock faces of the Chur Rhine Valley, the impressive view over the Rhine Valley and the Bünder Herrschaft remains in the memory even after the hike.
From the village centre of the Walser village of Valzeina, which is easily accessible by public transport, the path leads over green slopes directly up to the Tritt. Anyone who has ever looked at the steep rock faces on the drive through the Chur Rhine Valley will certainly have noticed the large transmission mast. This is the next corner point of the route - the way to the Mittagsplatte, where the transmission mast stands, is easily accessible and the view is worthwhile. Warmed up, you now start into the more difficult section of the path (T4) - sure-footedness and a head for heights are prerequisites for enjoying the tour to the fullest. The narrow path runs along the ridge and offers a magnificent view over the Grisons Rhine Valley. The final ascent to the Medli leads through a steep, but well secured mountain flank. The last piece to the highest point is pathless. The descent takes place only on a mountain hiking trail which soon leads into a road. Follow this in the direction of Ober Clavadätsch and pass farms and Maiensässen back to Valzeina, the starting point.
Take a fine souvenir with you in Maria Heinz-Walli's farm shop or end the tour in the Dorfbeizli.
