From Sedrun we hike to Cavorgia, a small village inhabited all year round, and continue through a shady forest to the Stagias hill, a popular vantage point with a well-equipped fireplace. We admire the new building of Academia Vivian, whose premises can be booked for various events. Then we turn southward and our next destination is the suspension bridge that spans the Val Mutschnengia with a length of 100 meters.  Then we leave the sun-baked houses of Mutschnengia behind us and a hiking trail leads us on a piece of the old Lukmanier pass route. Before a path was blasted out of the rocks in the Rein da Medel gorge thanks to dynamite, the mule track led over Mompé Medel. At the S. Valentin chapel, the rather steep descent down to the Rhine begins. We cross the stream on a bridge whose foundations date back to Roman times, after which we go straight up on the other side to the Sontga Gada chapel. Striking inside the chapel are the frescoes, made in the middle of the 15th century. A pretty path lined with old stone walls completes the hike. From the train stop Acla da Fontauna the train brings you back to Sedrun.


From Sedrun we walk on the paved road to Cavorgia and at the crossroads near the chapel continue on the left until the junction of the trail on the right, which leads up into the forest. As soon as we reach a clearing with a pretty Maiensäss, we meet a forest road again. We follow this to Stagias. At the crossroads in Stagias we first keep right and afterwards we branch off again on a hiking trail to Mutschnengia. We soon see the suspension bridge. The restaurant is located at the bottom of the village. On the road to Curaglia continue until the junction turn left to Mompé Medel. Now we are on the old pass route.  At the church in Mompe Medel, the path branches off to the left and leads down to the Rhine. After the bridge, the ascent to the church of Sontga Gada and Acla da Fontauna begins.
