Über die Fuorcla Surlej
*Most famous mountain trail in the Engadine?
The Fuorcla Surlej is one of the most magnificent vantage points in the Eastern Alps! To the north one looks at the mighty peaks of the Albula Alps with Piz Julier as an eye-catcher. To the south one has a close view of the ice giants of the Bernina Alps, where Piz Roseg, Piz Bernina and Piz Bianco (with the famous Bianco ridge) are particularly impressive. This is where the high trail begins, perhaps the most famous in the Engadine. It also leads us (variant) to the Coazhütte. It is named after the first ascender of Piz Bernina. After the descent to Lej da Vadret (= glacial lake) you can go on foot or - more comfortable, but more expensive - by horse-drawn carriage through the Roseg valley to Pontresina (registration necessary, information at the Pontresina spa and tourist office).
