From the Walser village of Tschiertschen the trail continues uphill towards the mountains up to the Joch. Here, at the latest, you deserve a break before the trail meanders gently back towards the valley to Parpan.

From the Walser village Tschiertschen the path climbs up, through the forest, over clearings, past the many small hamlets and the countless Maiensässen. After a while you will reach Furgglis, where you can take a break and eat before the trail continues uphill. Gradually the forest thinned out until one leaves it completely behind and arrives at the Hüenerchöpf Alp. A short break in the small hamlet and enjoy the view is worthwhile before the path, now less steep, leads out of the valley up to the Joch. Here, at the latest, you deserve a break and take some time in the sun to enjoy the magnificent view. The descent to Parpan is no longer steep, but leads slowly down through the lovely landscape.
