This leisurely hike takes in some of the Engadin's many highlights. From uniquely stunning views of the Bernina Massif to the crystal-clear waters of mountain lakes - and an opportunity perhaps to spot the odd marmot or two - it's a genuine treat for all the senses.

The spectacular journey up to Muottas Muragl by funicular railway is a good indicator of the sort of panorama that awaits you. Those expectations are then exceeded once you reach the viewing platform at the Romantik Hotel Muottas Muragl (2454 m). The views of the Engadin (lake) landscape and the mountain scenery are without rival.
The signposted hiking trail begins on the left, above the panoramic trail, with a gentle ascent. Along the trail, past flora and fauna and the many charms of this high-alpine landscape, there are excellent views of the rock glacier slowly inching its way like a lava flow towards the valley. A good hour's hiking sees you reach the delightful lake of Lej Muragl (2715 m), resplendent in its magnificent colours. Look closely and you may even catch a glimpse of fish swimming in its waters. The return leg leads you downhill along a river across cow pastures and authentic alpine landscapes. Another hour and you are back at the funicular mountain station where refreshments await, before the comfortable and relaxing ride back down to the valley below.

Author’s recommendation

Hikers keen to add an extra section will certainly want to head for the panoramic trail and on to the Alp Languard mountain Station (1.5 h).
