While it isn't exactly on the way to anything, we made a detour to see the Zervreilahorn "on the way" to a week of running in Pontresina. It's not an unknown area, but it was unknown to us. The run we found here is a reminder that heading away from our beaten tracks can sometimes offer surprising rewards. Go deep into the Valser Tal and discover it's charm for yourself.
