Rare sight
The Grauner Alm (2173 m) is somewhat hidden on the left side of the Reschensee lake in the Vivana Valley and is highly recommended precisely for this reason. On the hike to the summit you often come across the otherwise quite rare edelweiss

Start in ➊ Graun at the tower in the lake (1555 m) in the direction of ➋ Langtaufers, after 250 m turn right over the ➌ bridge, through the Arluiwald forest to the ➍ Grauner Alm (2137 m). Bike & hike recommendation: Park the bike at the Grauner Alm and walk along trail no. 10 to the summit of the ➎ Endkopf (2652 m). A view of the valley that is hard to beat awaits visitors at the summit (480 hm; with ascent and descent, allow 2 ½ to 3 hours). After the descent to the alpine pasture, the return journey is via the alpine pasture path. Only technically well-versed bikers are recommended to descend via trail no. 10 (S3 passages!).
