Take the Madrisa gondola from Klosters Dorf to Saaser Alp. This is the sunny mountain of Klosters, where the first alpine discovery park «Madrisa-Land» is. Further on is the Saaser Alp. Follow the footpath in an eastward direction until you reach Zügenhüttli. On the high alpine path, you come to the Älpli and Schlappiner Joch. This path was a war zone during the Prättigauer War in 1622 between Graubünden and Montafon. But the path also served as a major trade route where wine and cattle were transported. From the Joch (ridge) drops a steep path to Schlappin. There in the mountain restaurants Gemsli or Erika, you can take refreshment. Next to Schlappin lake are places to barbeque. Using either the alp road or the footpath on the left side of the valley, you make your way beside the roaring river to Klosters Dorf.

Man muss während der Wanderung eine einigermaßen schwierige Bachüberquerung machen. Weiter ist der Abstieg vom Joch aus manchmal steil und unbequem. Die Pfade sind gelegentlich dicht bewachsen. Der Anfang von der Wanderung stimmt leider nicht völlig mit der Karte überein. Das Ende der Wanderung ist nicht eindeutig beschrieben. Von Schlappin nach Klosters habe ich den Weg an dem Wildbach gefolgt wie beschrieben in der Beschreibung. Auf der Karte und bei der Wegweisung ist aber ein Weg durch den Wald angegeben (welcher nicht entlang den Bach führt).
