The S-charl Joch lies far back in the secluded Avingatal.

Tour by Reto Wiesler. Hike along the alpine pasture path to the old track, turn left there (Mark. 1), cross the Valgarola stream on a bridge and follow the hiking trail and the signs to S-charl Joch. Through sparse forest and open meadows, the trail goes left of the stream, and thus away from the toboggan run, in a gentle climb up to the Mangitzeralm. (If you start from the car park in the valley, hike briefly into the valley to the first bridge). Now a wonderful high valley opens up in a northerly direction and you continue over gentle alpine meadows to the Mitteralm. You hike through a quiet, deserted valley directly on the valley floor and continue up to the Pravierter Hütte and the Jöchelhütte. You will soon have reached your destination: One last steep section and you are at the border to Switzerland, on the S-charl Joch. (border stone, large cross). Descent from the S-charl Joch: same as ascent.
