The Chavalatsch rises as a pronounced and striking peak between the valley of Trafoi and the Münstertal in the upper Vinschgau.

Shortly before the state border at Taufers in the Münstertal valley (car road from Prad in the Vinschgau valley here), a side road branches off to the left and leads down to the hamlet of Puntweil, where the tour begins and ends. From there (1220 m) take the steep but shady forest path, well marked with No. 10, up to the beautifully situated Rifairalm (2146 m). From Puntweil 2:30 hrs. Now on the trail, also marked with No. 10, keep slightly to the left over the alpine slopes in a fairly long ascent to the ridge running northwards from Piz Chavalatsch and, turning right, continue on trail No. 10 over the ultimately rocky ridge ridge without any problems up to the summit. From Rifairalm a good 2 hours - descent: on the ascent trail.
