From Langwies, the path leads up through the wild and romantic valley, through deep gorges, over high bridges, past large icicles and a wild stream. As soon as the trail leaves the forest, you walk through a beautiful valley towards the Dörfji "Sapün": an old, beautiful Walser village. It is worth stopping for a moment to admire the beautiful houses. After the village, the trail continues through the valley, passing small hamlets. At the end, it becomes a little more strenuous and steep, but after a short while you reach the Heimeli mountain inn.
