From Thusis (680 m above sea level), the old Viamala road leads through the "lost hole" to Rongellen. The 300-meter high cliffs of the Viamala Gorge natural monument will amaze you. The road runs high over the Viamala and looking into the gorge is worth it. A stop at the Visitor Center not only gives you a chance to rest, but also brings you closer to the AlpTransit’s history. The route continues in the direction of the Muntogna da Schons and Schamserberg villages. Through Zillis (945 m above sea level) and Donat you’ll reach Lohn (1585 m above sea level), Mathon and Wergenstein. A great view over the whole valley, including the fantastic road to Wergenstein, which towers high above the Schamsertal will be your reward. A nice descent on an agricultural road brings you to Casti. An imposing wooden bridge takes you to Clugin, before you start the last stretch of the journey riding on a dirt road to Andeer (982 m above sea level). Andeer is known for its healing spring. Enjoy the mineral bath with a wellness area – it’s a guaranteed rest for your sore muscles.
