Demanding mountain hike to the highest Samnaun peak, the Muttler (3,294 m above sea level).
Distance 13.7 km
From Samnaun Dorf the hiking path leads into Val Maisas, past the shepherd's hut and over alpine meadows to Rossboden. The day's destination, Muttler, always remains in view. We continue via Lange Seite to reach Rote Seeli, which turns red in summer. In recent years the lake has often almost dried up, so that the natural phenomenon is unfortunately no longer visible. Algae are responsible for the colouring. On Rossbodenjoch the view opens up over Val Sampuoir and the Mundin group. From here you continue via Nordgrad to Samnaun’s highest peak, Muttler. The last steep section over brittle slate is often damp or even icy and thus slippery. The summit panorama compensates the effort and includes the Silvretta, Bernina and Verwall groups in the west and north, the Ötztal Alps and Ortler in the east and south. On a clear day you can even see the Lake of Constance. The same path takes us back again to Samnaun Dorf.
