Tour description

The tour up on Alp Meder was long regarded as something of an insider’s tip in the Mittelprättigau valley. It runs through an unspoilt region that boasts wonderful panoramic views. And even though it is now officially signposted, the route has lost none of its appeal.

The tour begins in Küblis and follows the course of the pretty Landquart river. After passing secluded spots along the river the trail climbs along short but steep ramps up to Saas. Next up is the climb along the mountain road towards Madrisa. After some 4 km the route branches off in the direction of Oberberg. The alpine track takes us past below Zastia to the idyllic Alp Meder, at which stage we have reached the highest point on the tour.
It is well worth taking a break here to cast more than a fleeting glance at the wonderful mountain panorama. Next up is the thrilling downhill run to a fast-flowing single trail to Runggalin and on to the Pläviggin lake. This reservoir supplies Küblis with water via its headrace tunnel so the power plant in the valley is able to generate electricity.
The downhill run to Küblis is not quite as precipitous as the headrace tunnel itself. From the lake of Plävigin to Tälfsch and on down to Küblis the trail is technically demanding but relatively straightforward; nonetheless it does get quite steep. So plenty of concentration is once again required. Indeed, it is at speed that we finally reach Küblis.


Accessible from May to October.

  • Sehr schöne Tour oberhalb Küblis. Auch für Einsteiger sehr geeignet, nur die Verbindungsstrasse (Strasse??) von Meder nach Tälfsch hat mich doch sehr überrascht, ich dachte ich kenne schon die schlimmsten Schlammpassagen in Graubünden .. vielleicht haben die jetzt den Weg ausgebessert denn in Tälfich stand eine Baumaschine.
    Tendency: DerAufstieg bietet keine technischen Anforderungen, zwischen Meder und Tälfsch muss geschoben oder getragen werden. Der Abstieg hat am Anfang ein kurzes steiles Stück mündet dann aber in eine wunderschönen Waldweg.
    Special: Gratis-Parkplätze in Küblis nähe des Wasserkraftwerkes
