Starting at the train station, the trail leads over the Isla to the beautiful Alteinsee. A rest at the lake is worthwhile, as the ascent via the Jammertälli deserves its name. At Valbella Furgga, a beautiful cross and a super panorama await you. From there it's a crisp climb to the summit of Sandhubel. Although the last section also has steep passages, the path is never exposed or rough. A great way to climb a peak via a marked route. After enjoying the breathtaking panorama, the descent follows via the same route.
