Senda Muottas da Schlarigna

This walk offers exceptional views in an old Swiss stone pine forest and over the lakes of the Upper Engadin.
This route leads westwards from Pontresina railway station up to the plateau of Alp Staz. Next to the bench, yellow directory to Alp Staz, is a thousand years old Swiss stone pine. From here a path climbs quite steeply through the old forest of larch and Swiss stone pine to Muottas da Schlarigna (2,305m). The reward for your exertions is a magnificent panoramic view over Pontresina.

This wonderful view of Pontresina, with its traditional hotels lying stretched out over the valley floor, is the reward that waits the ascent. From here one also sees the formidable avalanche protection built above Pontresina in 2003. The complex of avalanche dams and catchment areas is most intriguing. The system of defences deters both avalanches and landslides from reaching the small town.

The route continues along the tree-line of the forest providing further delightful views of the Upper Engadin and its lake district. The path then starts to take a gentle descent through bush land and then finally on into mountain woodland with a pleasant and easy walk back to St. Moritz Bad.
