The view over Sils changes with every step as you climb to Lej da la Tscheppa, a hidden high mountain lake, wildly beautiful. From Riva d’Lej, cross the main road and head directly up; It is a steep climb but a great test for the leg, heart and lungs! Lej da la Tscheppa is an unexpected delight and a good spot to rest for a while and to take in the scenery. Descending towards Silvaplana the trail winds down the mountainside dotted with little lakes and areas of marshland. Enjoy the views over the Engadin landscape and on approaching the gorge, Vallun, take the Via Engiadina heading back toward the starting point at Sils.
