Turn-by-turn directions

  • At Chant Sura, follow the summer road further up instead of following Via Engiadina straight on
  • Continue along the road until you reach a fork. A path continues up to Alp Discholas. However, we continue to follow the path in the direction of Vnà.
  • Now follows a rather flat part of the tour
  • At the next junction, «Palapan», you can admire the beautiful Lower Engadine mountains
  • Afterwards, the trail continues to descend gently
  • The path winds through the quiet forest until you reach a clearing
  • Here is Prazif, where the regular snowshoe route along the Via Engiadina also reaches its end point
  • The trail then continues according to the Ramosch – Tulai – Vnà – Ramosch snowshoe route to Vnà and on to Ramosch
