Prättigauer Höhenweg

The Prättigauer Höhenweg (high-level trail) is certainly worthy of the name: a hike along contours, on one side the sight of the Rätikon sandstone, on the other side changing views, wide and deep down. As a finale, pure summit pleasure on the Jägglischhorn.
The Prättigauer Höhenweg (high-level trail) needs little introduction to hiking enthusiasts. They have all heard the names Schesaplana Hut and Carschina Hut, perhaps already climbed the Schesaplana (the name means «smooth stone») and noticed that the limestone rock on this mountain isn’t smooth, but crumbly, fissured and seen from the hut – dizzyingly steep.

But the highlight route leads along the contours below the limestone cliffs of Schesaplana, Kirchlispitzen and Drusenfluh, letting you watch the climbers from a safe distance as they hang like woodpeckers on the hundreds of rock-climbing routes that criss-cross the Rätikon cliff faces. Not until the last stage does the hiker also get the chance to reach a summit cairn. And in return, the views from Jägglischhorn between St. Antönien and Klosters are that much more extensive, affording panoramic views of the entire Rätikon mountain chain.
