Hiking the Prättigauer Höhenweg – Day 1

Spectacular Prättigauer Höhenweg (Prättigau high-level trail)

A 72km-long hike from Landquart to Klosters in Graubünden

This multiple-day hike was in Yasuko’s list for a long time, particularly the stretch from Schesaplana Hut to Carschina Hut. It is a spectacular area with soaring limestone rock peaks, which look like Dolomites in Italy. 

Prättigauer Höhenweg Day 1:
Landquart (522m) to Fadärastein (1179m) to Seewis (947m)
11km with a height gain of 650m

Crossing the Landquart river to Malans

A relatively short stretch of 11 km from Landquart to Seewis. A pleasant walk along the Landquart river to Malans and then a winding path going up the Fadärstein cliff. This path was a lot easier than I remembered last time! It was very windy at the top but it had a sweeping view of the Rhein Valley! The rest of the path to Seewis was going through the deep green pastureland dotted with farm houses. I always enjoy this peaceful Swiss countryside!
