The walk can be started in Maloja village or directly at the car park Orden Dent. A wide path first leads along the Orlegna through a wide valley. After crossing the river, the climb begins, which for a short stretch lies in the pine forest, but soon offers great views towards Piz Margna. Over some high moors you finally reach the Cavloc lake and further on the Alp Cavloc. In very good snow conditions, the trail continues even further to Plan Canin (+ 2 km there and back).

Author’s recommendation

Take a picnic and tea with you! Unfortunately the restaurant at Lake Cavloc is closed in winter, but there are sunny benches.
