At the valley station of the Furtschella cable car, the forest road leads through the varied and impressive mountain forest to just before the ruins of the former Alp la Muotta. Again and again the views of the often mint green shining Silvaplana lake are amazing. On the official mountain bike route No. 1 we continue to Surlej. After you have crossed the holiday resort, you cycle along the forest road past the Paravicini hut to the fascinating high moorland plain of Palüd Lungia, from where the trail, passing the small Lej Zuppò and the black Lej Nair, leads down to the moorland lake Lej Marsch. The bathing lake, which is often pleasantly warm for Engadin standards, and its immediate natural surroundings invite you to swim, picnic and barbecue. The way back is first along the banks of the river Inn and then above Lake Champfèr behind Crest'alta to the enchanted Lej Ovis-chel near Surlej. A challenging, difficult alternative leads via the spectacular Crest'Alta vantage point to Surlej. In Surlej, the trail passes the castle of Crap da Sass on the shore of Lake Silvaplana. When the Maloja wind blows, many water sports enthusiasts cavort on this lake, and the lake is dotted with many colourful windsurfers, kite surfers and sailors who flirt with the lake and the waves.

Ich würde die Runde auf die andere Seite rum (im Uhrzeigersinn) fahren. Zuerst den Seen entlang dann hoch durch den Wald!
