From the starting point we follow the road to the north. Through a picturesque larch forest we cross the slope high above the Marmorera lake, from where we can take a short look at the ruins of Marmels. After the moorland we reach the decommissioned iron ore mining area of Gruba and after a short ascent we reach Salategnas, the first settlement on the high plateau of the impressive Alp Flix. The hike continues through Cuorts to the "Lais Blos" (Blue Lakes), and onwards through light forest to Plang da Crousch, one of the most beautiful vantage points of the valley. Following the downward-sloping Veia Surmirana, we pass several mountain pastures. A slightly steeper descent towards Tinizong until Savognin follows.
This hike is part of the Veia Surmirana.
Take a break at the Lais da Flix. It has two barbeque areas with wood and also has a toilet. While your sausages are sizzling on the grill, you can stow the nearby stream or cool down your feet in the lake.
From the starting point we follow the path to the north. The tail leads via Pardeala and Gruba to Salategnas. From there, the path continues to the Lais da Flix via Tigias and Tgalucas.
