The starting point is either in the well-preserved Engadin village of Sent or at the Val Sinestra spa hotel. Both starting points can be easily reached by public transport. From Sent, you walk the first six kilometers on a forest road, without much of an incline, to the Val Sinestra spa house. The art nouveau building Val Sinestra was built in 1912 as a spa house, today it houses a hotel and a restaurant. Just below the mighty spa house you cross the Brancla for the first time. In the forest you follow the course of the stream and after a while you meet the first and shortly after the second suspension bridge that you have to cross. Adventurously, the view of the sometimes wild, but mostly calm mountain stream is unobstructed.  Then the valley opens up again and on a clearing you reach the inn and restaurant Hof Zuort. After Zuort, the forest turns into pastureland and soon you reach the cluster of houses Griosch. The restaurant Tanna da Muntanella is at the turning point of the hike. From here on you don't go further into the valley, but walk on the well-built forest road again in the direction of the Lower Engadine. After about five kilometers you reach the hamlet of Vnà. In Vnà, the end point of the hike, there are places to stop for refreshments; the PostBus stop is located at the eastern exit of the village.

Sehr empfehlenswerte Wanderung. Sehr abwechslungsreich. Malerische Dörfer, aussichtsreiche und größtenteils nur leicht ansteigende Wege.
