Close up on mountain formation. In no other place in the world are the traces of mountain formation as clearly visible as in the Sardona area. For this reason, the region became part of UNESCO World Heritage in 2008.
But not only the hearts of geologists beat higher, even hikers get their money's worth. A picture-pretty and almost untouched mountain landscape awaits you on this alpine hiking tour. The many small lakes and the impressive peaks of the Sardona region will enchant you.
The descent follows the fascinating waterway Trutg dil Flem.
In uncertain weather conditions, the tour should not be started. Weather reversals in the mountains are common.
Good hiking boots with good profile or trekking shoes, weatherproof clothing
By cable car up to the Tschinglen Alp. Here begins the climb to Segnespass - always the Tschingelhörner and the Martinsloch in mind. On descent, after the alluvial and moorland landscape of Segnasboden, the landscape is increasingly marked by the Flims landslide. Optionally, the tour over the Alp Ngens can be shortened with the Nagens-Shuttle.
