After a beautiful ascent to the lovely Walser village of Tschiertschen, the route continues to the Hühnerköpfe mountain restaurant, from where the hike continues to the Gürgaletsch with great views.
Distance 43.6 km
The first part of the climb takes place on the little-used mountain road from Chur via Passugg to Tschiertschen. The magnificent Walser village is definitely worth a stop - if not during the ascent, at the latest on the return journey. The route then continues on mountain and forest roads higher and higher up into the magnificent Tschiertschen mountain world. With the Furgglis mountain inn and the Hühnerköpfe mountain restaurant, there are two worthwhile options for refreshments along the way. At the latter, the change from the e-bike tour to the hike follows. There are still about 450 meters of altitude to climb before reaching the summit of the Gürgaletsch at 2,441m. There, a wonderful view of the Schanfigg valley, the Alpine City of Chur, the surrounding Grisons mountains, as well as the Glarus Alps in a southwesterly direction and, on a clear day, as far as the Bernese Alps.
The descent follows the same route. For technically experienced mountain bikers who still have reserves, however, there are also various trail options back to Chur.
