From Tarasp Fontana, the hike leads via Fontana Sura to the entrance of Val Zuort. The route continues in the direction of Resgia Plavna, which can be reached in half an hour through the dense forest from Godplan. At the dwarf playground "Ils set nanins" at the old sawmill, the tour leads over the stream "Aua da Plavna" with a subsequent ascent to Alp Laisch, which is open to visitors during summering times and offers guided tours of the alpine cheese dairy. The following steep ascent through the "Vals Arsas" forest is fortunately shady. At the junction, turn left towards "Motta Jüda" at the foot of "Crap Putèr". The hill is climbed clockwise from the edge of the forest. With the majestic Lower Engadine Dolomites (Piz Pisoc, Piz Zuort, Sesvenna Group) and the wide Val Plavna behind you, you get a view over the Lower Engadine villages from Lavin to Sent. Piz Linard, Piz Buin and the southern foothills of the Silvretta rise above. The descent follows the same path until the edge of the forest. Here you branch off to the left and after the saddle between "Crap Putèr" and "il Clauter" you reach the descent with several hairpin bends to the "Aua da Sampuoir" stream. From the bridge, the trail follows the course of the valley to the connecting road between Sur En and Ardez. This leads, crossing the Inn, to Ardez to the railway station.

Alternative: Simply take the same route back to Tarasp.
