Overview:

Overview of the trails to Chamanna Cluozza

There are two trails to the Chamanna Cluozza, one starts in Zernez at the national park's visitor center - there is a parking lot and a bus stop, the other at Vallun Chafuol, parking lot P3 / bus stop "Vallun Chafuol". A third opportunity is the trail to S-Chanf, but this is a technical hike!
Note: We strongly discourage to walk on the Pas dal Fuorn road, it is a small road with a lot of traffic and there is no room for pedestrians !
