SILS-MARIA TO PONTRESINA
- If you somehow left Sils-Maria hungry, the Berghaus Fuorcla Surlej is on the pass at the end of the uphill. Or if you really like eating at mountain huts, the Chamanna Coaz is a detour further into the Val Roseg, but a good way to make the day longer and another slice of pie more necessary.
- You'll find everything you need in Pontresina.
Piz Bernina (4049m) the Alps' easternmost 4000 meter peak in full view
Traversing east, high above the Lej da Silvaplauna
After rolling over the Surlej Pass, the landscape turns a lot more dramatic with views of the Piz Bernina, the Alps' easternmost 4000 meter peak
Beginning the descent to the Rosegtal will have you tripping over just about everything as you take in the view
Thankfully, at times there is little to trip over
High above the Rosegtal and far below the high peaks
Once in the Rosegtal, a long cruise out low angled, smooth terrain leads all the way to Pontresina
