A challenging hike through the wild Welschtobel, all the way up to the Erzhorn saddle and via the romantic Älplisee lake back to Arosa.
The hike starts at the Untersee lake Arosa and leads to the Isel, across the river and deeper into the wild valley. The hills on both sides are steep and one might also observe chamois, deer and ibexes. Once at the Ramoz hut (a non-attended SAC hut) it might be wise to enjoy a break before the path ascents to the Erzhorn saddle. As of here surefootedness and head for heights is required. Also the ascent demands high concentration. As soon as the tricky passage is over the path continues downhill to the Älplisee lake. Your feet will love the cool down in the icy water. During the summer you might even enjoy a swim. After the Älplisee lake the trail leads to the Schwellisee lake and finally arrives back to Arosa.
Getting thereOnce you arrive in Chur, follow the sign posts to Arosa. At the village entrance, opposite the petrol station, turn left and follow the street downhill.
There is only a limited amount of parking spots at the Untersee lake. It is recommended to park at the car park Ochsenbühl, it is located a few hundret metres from the train station Arosa.
