Unser Tipp für folgende Etappe der Via Albula / Bernina:

  • Der kristallklare Palpuognasee im Lärchenwald - eine Oase der Erholung.
  • Der Naturwald Crap Alv -  Das Naturwaldreservat befindet sich zwischen Preda und dem Albulapass.

Along the «King's Stage» from northern Italy to the southern portal of the tunnel and over the pass. The mountain hike leads past the crystal-clear Palpuognasee lake, over Weissenstein Alp or Crap Alv up to the Fuorcla Crap Alv (2466 m altitude) and steeply down into Val Bever to the idyllic stage destination of Spinas.

Wunderschöne, abwechslungsreiche Landschaft! Ein Traum! Jedoch hatten wir statt der angegebenen 4,5 Stunden sicher 5,5 Stunden und sind nicht ausgesprochen langsame Wanderer... der Abstieg ins Tal ist sehr steil. Trittsicherheit ist gefragt.
