The Postbus takes you from Chur to the starting point at Parpan (bus stop Parpan Dorf). From there, walk along a com-fortable path northwards and pass by at Tschuggen, Oberberg, Capätsch and further up to the restaurant at Jochalp.

From the Churer Joch you enjoy wonderful panorama views to the Chur Rhine valley, the Schanfigg valley and the surroundings of Lenzerheide. The alpine flora is remarkably rich and colorful in this area. At the Jochalp restaurant you can treat yourself before you continue.

The descent takes you to the handsome mountain village of Tschiertschen. From there, you can take the Postbus, that takes you back to Chur in a short driving time.
