The circular hike begins from the Prasüras car park near S-chanf. Behind the Restorant Prasüras, the path leads up into the forest for a short distance, then winds its way high above the roaring river into the valley. Through a beautiful forest with moss and a great variety of plants underground, it seems as if you are already in the national park. but the national park only begins behind the Varusch park hut, which you reach after an hour hike. You can return the same way or take the road back to the Prasüras car park.
