The plain around Domat/Ems consists of different landslides: The Flimser Bergsturz, Kunkels and Calanda. The erosion has left over only the hard debris. This hills are called «Tumas» and build a protected nature reserve today.

The Chur city bus no.1 takes you from the main station to Domat/Ems (bus-stop «Domat/Ems Post»), the starting point. During this hiking tour you will explore different «Tumas», cross the Rhine river and visit the village of Tamins. On the way back to Domat/Ems, you cross the Rhine river another time, across a weir this time. At the same bus-station (Domat/Ems Post) you take the bus back to Chur.
