Schweizerischer Nationalpark - Many people consider this to be the most enjoyable walk in the National Park.

It leads through steppe landscape, quite untypical in Switzerland, with wonderful views towards the Parco Nazionale dello Stelvio (I) in the south-east. Interesting geological phenomena can also be observed.

Particularities
Former mines at Buffalora, creeping soils on Munt Chavagl, view from Munt la Schera.
For this hike the Focus leaflets Der geologische Kreislauf and Die Schmetterlinge am Munt la Schera (only available in German) can be purchased at the National Park Centre in Zernez.
Geological nature trail in the opposite direction on this route (start at Il Fuorn/P6).
