In Mompé Medel we start on a road to the hill Stagias. On the way we take time in between to look around a little, because the view of Disentis is fantastic. Once at the top, we relax for the next few hundred meters until the path attracts something. We arrive at Alp Pazzola, where numerous cows enjoy their summer retreat and give good milk for a fine-tasting alpine cheese. 

The descent into the Val Medel, over the Maiensässe Plaun Pardatsch, over alpine pastures and through forest leads over a single trail and requires a lot of technology. The next highlight is the suspension bridge in Mutschnengia. It is the result of a project with forestry apprentices and is made of larch wood. Between the old houses and stables of the village we feel transported back in time by decades. 

The last section of the route we cover on the old mule track to Mompé Medel. Only when the gunpowder was invented could a road be blown up into the rocks down in the gorge, after which the new passage replaced the route via the "Pass Roman".

If you want to avoid the suspension bridge, you can change straight ahead at the chapel in Pali onto the road to Mutschnengia.


Stop at the panoramic restaurant Cuntera in Mutschnengia


Be careful on the trail just before the suspension bridge. Short schiebestrevke.


In Mompé Medel we start uphill to Stagias. There we continue straight on in the direction of Alp Pazzola. Arriving at the Alp we drive the same way back a bit and turn right after about 1 km to Tegia Nova. At Plaun Pardatsch we meet a forest road that leads down into the Val Medel. We turn left before Platta and drive to Pali. From here it goes up to the left again, until the junction to the right, on the hiking trail to Mutschnengia. The short distance to the suspension bridge is only partially drivable. In Mutschnengia we reach the access road to Curaglia. However, we leave this at the first turn to the left. The road later leads to the hiking trail to Mompé Medel.
