At Sils Baselgia you start the circular trail and walk along the calm, turquoise waters of Lake Sils. After following the shore of the picturesque lake to the other end, cross the road at the first houses of Maloja and leave the lake. Now the stony trail up to Lägh dal Lunghin (2484 meters) begins. All around the lake you can enjoy a great alpine panorama with the Piz Lunghin, the Piz Grevasalvas and even higher snow-covered peaks in the distance, which form the border to Italy: Piz Roseg, Piz Fedoz, Cima di Rosso and Cima di Castello.

On the way back, the trail is a bit bumpier at first until you pass the small village of Grevasalvas, where the charming stone and wooden houses invite you to take a break and forget about time. Although the village is a small detour, but the few meters you have to climb up to the trail are worth it. The further descent follows the Via Engiadina, a gentle, unpaved single trail down to the glistening waters of Lake Sils.

Author’s recommendation

This tour is especially beautiful in autumn when the larches are golden.

On the pass Lunghin, above the Lägh Lunghin there is a triple watershed.
