This hike leads to the pass crossing between Piz Trupchun and Piz Saliente, at the far end of Val Trupchun on the border with Italy. In the upper part of the steep tour, surefootedness is required. In cloudy weather, ibexes can already be observed in the valley floor. In warm summer weather, rather on the rocky ridges around the Fuorcla. On the one hand, the tour invites you to extend the easy hike to Alp Trupchun, but on the other hand, it also offers the possibility of a pass hike from S-chanf to Livigno (continuing hiking trail on the Italian side through the steep Valle del Saliente, hiking time: 2:30h). From Livigno there is a bus connection with Silvestri Bus (Swiss tickets valid) to Zernez and Pontresina.

Note: Dogs are not allowed in the Swiss National Park, not even on a leash. For more information and all protections, see nationalpark.ch/schutzbestimmungen.


The Swiss National Park (SNP) offers a guided day hike to Val Trupchun on Thursdays (during the deer rut in autumn also on Fridays www.nationalpark.ch/).


Steep and strenuous, slippery debris in the upper part, surefootedness required.
