Details

Description

First you climb the historic Septimer Pass, before continuing up the left side of the valley to the Lunghin Pass. Once at the top, Europe's only triple watershed awaits you. From here, the water flows into three different oceans. The Eva dal Lunghin, later Eva da Sett, flows into the Julia and then enters the Rhine, which ends in the North Sea. The source of the Inn, which flows into the Danube and then enters the Black Sea, also has its source on the Lunghin. The Maira River flows through the Bregaglia, then joins the Po and finally enters the Adriatic Sea. The descent to Maloja is rewarded with a beautiful view of the Engadine. 

Geheimtipp

If you want to enjoy even more views, make a detour to the Piz Lunghin 2779 m. The view of the Engadin is unique.

Ausrüstung

Sturdy footwear and practical outdoor clothing are recommended.

Directions

From Bivio we start at the end of the village after the Hotel Post in the direction of Septimerpass. Shortly before the pass you reach the junction towards the Lunghin Pass. Descend at Lägh dal Lunghin to Maloja, from where you take the PostBus via St. Moritz Bad back to Bivio.

possibility:

From the Lunghin Pass there are also less steep descents such as Plaun da Lej or via the Heidi village Grevasalvas to Sils i.E.. A third option would be via the Fuorcla Grevasalvas to the Julier Pass. From here, a PostBus returns to Bivio in summer (attention, only a few PostBus routes).
