From Plaun da Lej you follow partly the farm road that connects Grevasalvas with the world even in winter. In the small hamlet you turn south-west and follow the last part of the Engadin High Altitude Trail. On the same path you return to Plaun da Lej.

Author’s recommendation

In Plaun da Lej the restaurant "Murtaröl" offers a fabulous fish cuisine, which is famous throughout the Engadin. The excursion is worthwhile!
