You may well see marmots and chamois along this varied route. The hiking trail starts at the Hotel Restaurant Roseg Gletscher and first crosses the Ova da Roseg bridge before climbing steadily up the mountainside. The path coming from Pontresina branches off just before the bridge to the Hotel Restaurant Roseg Gletscher. On the way, you can enjoy a non-stop view of the Sella mountain range, with the Roseg and Sella Glaciers, and the wide Ova da Roseg riverbed. A short time later, you will find yourself walking along the moraine at the foot of the Tschierva Glacier towards the Tschierva hut, where an impressive panorama awaits. The imposing Piz Roseg, Piz Bernina (the only four-thousander in the Eastern Alps, with the famous Biancograt) and the Tschierva Glacier are constantly in view. The descent is by the same route. Horse-drawn buses operate from the Restaurant Roseg Gletscher to Pontresina (note departure times) or, if you have cycled to the valley by mountain bike or e-bike, you now have an easy ride back to Pontresina.
Of limited suitability for families. Sturdy footwear and surefootedness are required.
