: We start in Sedrun with packed snowshoes and hike to the year-round inhabited hamlet Cavorgia. On a signalled snowshoe trail, we now go uphill on a snow-covered road with a leisurely incline. As soon as we enter the forest we are in the wild rest zone and we can imagine, based on the many animal tracks in the snow, who is hibernating everything. In Stagias we get a glimpse of the neighbouring valley Val Medel with the village of Curaglia, which lies at the foot of a mighty mountain range. Continue along the path to the Alp Pazzola, the highest point of the tour. No tree or shrub blocks us from the deep view into the valley and the view of the mountain panorama. At the alpine huts you will always find a wind-protected place for an extensive rest. We walk back to Stagias on the same route, but then we are allowed to go to Mutschnengia over the open field and put our own trail in the snow. Tired and satisfied, we reach the Hotel Cuntera, where we are warmly welcomed.  (Reservation:


2nd day: We only wear the snowshoes until we reach the trail that leads us on the historic Lukmanier pass route to Mompé Medel, a small Walser settlement with Bilck on Disentis. During the steep descent to Cuflons, right up to the Rhine, concentration is required. Arriving at the river, only the murmur of the water welcomes us - it is an idyllic place. We slowly start the ascent to Disentis and as soon as we reach the winter hiking trail, we pack up the shee shoes and it is not far to Disentis station.


In Stagias stands the wooden building of the Academia Vivian, on whose stairs you can take a wonderful break. Behind the Hotel Cuntera, a suspension bridge made of larch wood leads over an imposing ravable.


Do not leave the signposted route in the wildlife rest zone.


On the access road we reach Cavorgia from Sedrun in about 45 minutes. From here, the trail is signposted in pink. We follow the route towards Stagias. At the first junction we keep the direction and the route makes a longer loop into a small valley. We now reach a clearing with a few cornässen. Shortly afterwards there is a turnoff. Here we turn right and we stay on the way to Stagias. At the crossroads we keep right and follow the signs for Alp Pazzola. On the same way back to Stagias. Then the route leads over a snow-covered road to Mutschnengia. After the village we walk on the access road until we reach the signaling for the snowshoe trail on the left side of the road. At first it is a snow-covered dirt road, later we follow the hiking trail. Shortly after the memorial plaque to the historic path, the path climbs to the left and leads us out to the forest to a toboggan run. For a few minutes we hike on or next to this path. Then the signaling points us over a back to Mompé Medel. At the chapel we find the turnoff down to Cuflons. We cross the bridge, there is a climb to the winter hiking trail towards Disentis.
