The striking, wild and intact natural landscape on the eastern edge of the national park impresses from the beginning of the tour.  The tour connects the Unterngadiner main town of Scuol with the upper Val Müstair on the shortest and probably most attractive route. Through the impressive Val S-charl past the picturesque miner's village from the time of ore mining, it goes to the highest against the pine forest in Europe and on over the Pass da Costainas into The Val Müstair. The tour through the Val S-charl and over the Pass da Costainas is characterized by a unique and intact natural and cultural landscape along a mountain stream, through light larch, pine and pine forests, in the middle of attractive Alps and rugged three-thousanders. In the hamlets of S-charl and Lü it is worth taking a break.


The Alp Astras and the host Alp Chamatsch invite you to a refreshing rest in midsummer.


On high-altitude sections, snowfields are possible until the summer months.

The tour was evaluated in favorable weather conditions, the current weather conditions and weather forecasts must be observed before the start of the tour. This tour does not place any special demands on driving safety and technical skills.
