Every year, at the beginning of autumn, the larches in the valley turn a resplendent golden colour. Framed by the snow-capped mountain peaks and the deep-blue Engadin sky, they form a magnificent backdrop for glorious walks – such as through the Staz forest, with its dense network of footpaths. The upper part of the forest, God Plazzer, is home not just to larches and mountain pines, but also – at over 1,000 years of age – some of the oldest Swiss stone pines in Graubünden. Equally remarkable are the marshlands, which are among the highest-lying in the Alps.
The most striking inhabitant of the Engadin forests is the nutcracker, a brown bird with white speckles that can frequently be encountered around Swiss stone pine trees.
