Your hike begins at the Susch railway station; before the bridge over Val Susasca, turn right and ascend along the river. From the start follow the signposts toward Jöriseen. The time indications on the signposts correspond to a different route, so you can disregard them. On the following metres leading up the mountain, you will pass two crossroads. Turn left at the first junction and right at the second. From here you continue on an alpine path towards Nudigls. At the crossroad at about 1700 metres above sea level, follow the Alpstrasse to the right (not left to the Jöriseen lakes). Here you will reach the Panoramaweg via Nudigls. On this section you can expect a unique view, which makes every step up to Alp Fless Dadoura worthwhile.

Now follow the mountain stream Aua da Fless for three kilometres to Alp Fless Dadaint. At this point you cross the stream. The path passes the alp and climbs up toward the Jöriflesspass. On the pass crossing the first lakes become visible. Along the impressive Jöriseen lakes you cross the high plateau before a further ascent to the Jöriflüelafurgga pass follows. You have now reached the highest point of the hike and you will see that the view back to the Jöriseen lakes is worth the climb. The 500-metre descent to the Wägerhus on the Flüelapass road now lies before you. The PostBus takes you from the Wägerhus bus stop back to Susch.  

Alternatively, the first section to Prà Dadoura can be covered by PostBus.
