Hello there!

This beautiful hike of 12km length and a total ascend of 950m is not technical but sometimes steep and it requires head for heights and sure-footedness.

From the summit station of non-profit Älplibahn in Malans, we are hiking up Messhaldenspitz and further to Vilan, where we enjoy the stunning view over the Rhine Valley and the surrounding mountains such as Piz Bernina or Piz Kesch! After descending to Sadreinegg we are following the relatively flat path back to Älplibahn. If time permits, we can enjoy a glass of local wine on the restaurant's sunny terrace before taking the cable car back to Malans.

We meet at 08:20am at the Protected content . Please buy a (return) ticket to "Malans, Älplibahn" (via Landquart) before. The return ticket for the cable car in Malans is 15 CHF per person.

What to bring (minimum):
- Hiking boots
- Water for the whole hike
- Lunch and snacks
- Sun protection
- Rainjacket
- Train ticket to "Malans, Älplibahn"
- Face mask for train and cable car
- Some good mood :-)

In case of thunderstorms, this event might be postponed by one week or even cancelled.

This is a meeting of individuals, but not a guided tour. You take part in this activity at your own risk.
