Piz Ot (3,246m)
The path leads from Samedan through fragrant conifer forests to the tree level and into the beautiful unspoilt landscape at 2,233m. Here, by the Alp Munt mountain hut, you will be captivated by the view over the picturesque Engadin villages and the peaks of the Bernina range. Accompanied by a mountain stream, the trail continues through the Valletta Valley and towards the craggy peak of Piz Ot. The small lake, Funtauna Fraida ("cold spring"), is a good spot to catch your breath before tackling the last leg, a steep path up through the rocks. With each metre of altitude, the view becomes more and more spectacular.
Tip: On Wednesdays between 9 July and 3 September, you can reach dizzying heights in a no time at all – by taking the cable car from Celerina to Marguns, and then the chair lift up to the Trais Fluors, From here, after a short climb, you can reach Fuorcla Valletta.
