Turn-by-turn directions

The tour starts at the sawmill in Bergün and leads over a steep slope to the junction Chavaigl grond. From there you can enjoy a fantastic view of the Val Tuors and Val Tisch. After a short descent to the Ela hut SAC you will reach a steadily ascending path to the Ela Pass. As an addition, the detour via the Orgels Pass can be hiked.

From the Ela Pass the path leads down to the three mountain lakes. In this area, the various types of rock are very well visible and with the Piz Ela within reach, the walk becomes a special experience. The ascent to Fuorcla Tschitta rewarded with a beautiful view of the mountains around the Albula Pass. After the pass, the path leads across the alpine meadows to the Maiensäss settlement Naz. The way back takes place on the Railway Adventure path to Bergün.

The round hike can be ended in Preda. From there a train to Bergün leaves every hour.
