Details

Description

The starting point of the hike can be reached from Malans with the Älplibahn, which is operated and supported by volunteers. The goal set is not profit-oriented, but the preservation of the railway for summer operation. The ascent to the Vilan summit takes place first through a wooded section, soon over picturesque alpine landscapes and later on a beautiful mountain path. The popular summit destination offers a magnificent panorama of the Rhine Valley, the Churfirsten and other well-known mountains such as the Piz Bernina, Piz Kesch, Piz Linard and the Ringelspitz. From the summit, the descent and return path takes place along the well-marked path on the ridge eastwards to sadreinegg and further over Alp Sadrein to the pasture fountain Luvadina with a wonderful view over the Prättigau. Through loose forest, the hiking trail later leads into the alpine road, which climbs to the Jeninser Obersäss and from there leads back to the mountain station of the Älplibahn.

Geheimtipp

Before it goes back downhill, a stop in the mountain restaurant at the mountain station of the Älplibahn is mandatory. View and barley soup are a blast.

Sicherheitshinweis

A white-blue hiking trail also leads to the summit, which is only suitable for sure-footed hikers and should only be walked in good visibility and dry conditions.

Ausrüstung

Although the Vilan is relatively easy to hike, sturdy shoes and a jacket are part of your luggage (on the summit it can quickly get windy and cool).
