The tour starts at the post office in Maloja and first winds through the houses of Maloja to Lake Sils. The route leisurely follows Lake Sils before the gravel road branches off up to the two alps Ca d'Starnam and Petpreir. This is also where the single trail into Val Fex begins. Before Fex Crasta, the trail joins the road, which you follow to Fex Curtins. There, a gravel road continues to Alp Muot Selvas. Return to Maloja on the same trail.

Author’s recommendation

A visit to the museum of the Cheva Plattas da Fex is worthwhile. In the past, men from the neighbouring Val Malenco worked hard in this area in winter to quarry the famous Fex slabs, which were used to cover the roofs in Sils.
