Slightly longer hike through the impressive Ciamin (Tschamin) Valley and Valle del Principe (Grasleitental) Valley to the Grasleitenhütte Mountain Hut, situated in the well-known countryside around the Gruppo del Catinaccio (Rosengarten) Massif.

Directions


The hike starts in St Cipriano (St. Zyprian), not far from Tires (Tiers), at the parking lot near Lavina Bianca (Weisslahnbad) at 1,150 metres. Follow the dirt road into Ciamin (Tschamin) Valley until you reach Gasthaus Tschaminschwaige (1,173 m). Keep following the signposts to Grasleitenhütte on Trail No. 3 through the wild and unspoiled Ciamin Valley. Take Trail No. 3 at the junction at the end of the valley; it leads  steeply uphill on the right. After a short dip, the path takes you almost flat across alpine meadows to Grasleitenhütte Mountain Inn (2,129 m). The ascent takes approximately 3 hours; descent is along the same route.

Variante

Across Molignon Pass: For the dramatic scenery of a landscape created by glaciers over the course of time, keep going up the mountain on the trail leading to the Grasleitenhütte Mountain Hut. Two valleys meet here: the trail on the right leads to Grasleitenpass and the one on the left to Molignon Pass. A long steep passage takes you to Alpe di Tires Mountain Inn, where you can spend the night. Go back into Ciamin Valley via Orsara (Bärenloch). This variation adds about 4 ½ hours to your total walking time.
