A long ascent to reach the ridge is not necessary on this tour. The two chairlifts Tgantieni and Scalottas go from Lenzerheide directly to Piz Scalottas. The time saved is needed for the full tour.

The hike leads from Piz Scalottas to Piz Danis and via Stätzerhorn and Fulhorn to Dreibündenstein. At Fulbergegg it descends towards Hühnerköpfe, Alp Malix and finally Brambrüesch, where the hike ends. From there you can take the cable car down to Chur.

The trail is exposed in places and requires surefootedness, but rewards you with a breathtaking panorama of Piz after Piz.

Author’s recommendation

Those who do not want to do the whole tour can follow the hiking trail from Piz Danis towards Alp Stätz. There the cable car Heidbüel is waiting for you, with which you can comfortably ride down to Churwalden.
