As soon as you comfortably walk on the Via Engiadina from Sils Baselgia to Grevasalvas, you will be spoilt with a spectacular view of Lake Sils. Above the small heather village of Grevasalvas, which was the location of the Heidi film in the 1970s, you climb over alpine meadows to the large plain of Plaun Grand and from there the path climbs steeply up to the dreamy Lej Nair, which in high summer invites you for a refreshing swim and a welcome cooling off before the summit ascent. Over the impressive glacier-cut rocky ridge, which resembles a huge grey elephant's back, one gets closer to the Piz step by step. The small plains and hollows are suitable for ascents and breathers and with a little luck one even discovers ibex or chamois. Before the spectacular 360° panorama on the summit inspires and fascinates, the ascent over the wide ridge still needs a bit of fitness. The approximately 1110 m steep descent over the same path requires less fitness but good bones. The summit experiences and the spectacular valley view from a bird's eye view of the unique Upper Engadin lake landscape and the surrounding mountains accompany you on the way.
