From Maloja via Grevasalvas to Silvaplana - always with the vastness of the Upper Engadin lake landscape in view
Distance 12.6 km
This hike starts in Maloja. The village at the bottom of the mountain pass and at the gateway to the unspoilt Bregaglia Valley has attracted artists since time immemorial, thanks to its breathtaking scenery and fascinating interplay of light and shade. The path leads past Pila and Blaunca to the traditional village of Grevasalvas, where Johanna Spyrig's children's story, Heidi was set, which slumbers peacefully above Plaun da Lej. At Sils Baselgia, the hike almost reaches the valley floor, before rising again to end in trendy Silvaplana.
