In a few minutes you can take the cable car from Surlej (please note the operating hours) over tree tops and alpine meadows to the middle station of the Corvatsch cable car. A detour to Piz Corvatsch is well worth it. On the one hand, Corvatsch is the highest restaurant in the canton of Graubünden, and on the other, you can enjoy a fabulous 360-degree view of the mountains and the Upper Engadin lake district. After a refreshment in the Restaurant 3303, one comfortably floats back to the middle station. From there, you continue on foot downhill. While snow sports enthusiasts enjoy themselves here in winter, in summer hikers are delighted by the view over the Upper Engadin lake landscape. Along the slope, high above Lake Silvaplana, the easily accessible mountain hiking trail leads from the Corvatsch middle station, always following the "Segl", "Segl Maria" and "Segl Baselgia" signposts to Alp Prasüra, from where Sils can be easily reached on various paths.

Instead of walking down to Sils, you can also take the Furtschellas gondola.
