Hello hiking fellows,

Some friends of mine and I have decided to go on a the 3-Lakes hike this Sunday. Now, I was wondering if anyone would like to join us.


The 3-Lakes hike is considered to be one of the most beautiful tours in the Canton of Grisons (Graubünden). The wonderful high altitude cirque lakes sparkle in blue and green tones in the sunshine and the alpine landscape is magnificent. If time allows, drop in at the thermal bath in Vals.

The hike is 12,7km and last circa 6 h. Ascent: 761m, Descent: 942. The hike’s difficulty is ranked MEDIUM. It has been described to be well-sign-posted, non-dangerous paths, unadulterated region. Still, it has been advised to have sturdy hiking boots, as there is still in parts snow.

      Ok. Abi, Amin, Daisy and myself will be meeting you on the bus in Vals, or at the start of the hike should you guys get an extra bus for the sizable group. We will take the 9:11 from Vals to Zerveila. Looking forward to hiking with you.

    Hello Sab, My name is Adriana, I really would like to join the group tomorrow, but I am in a waiting list. Do you think there will be any chance I can join the group? Thanks very much. Adriana

    I'll meet either at the starting point of the hike or on the train at Chur (I'm starting from Buchs SG)

    June 28, 2013

  • Sabriye

    Ok.
    1. Thanks for your RSVPing and for your helpful information. It seems that our hike is taking shape...I hope we manage to get it all together. 2. I've reserved a compartment on the trains for us from Zurich to Chur, Chur to Ilanz, Ilanz to Vals, Zerveila. Also, for our return, I've reserved some space for us on the Postauto from Vals to Ilanz for about 30 people at 7.40pm, i.e. we are arriving back in Zurich at 10.30pm.

    3. Also as Anja pointed out there is a Wanderbus from Peiltal to Vals, which needs to be reserved. As I am not sure exactly how long it will takes us from Vals, Zerveila to Peiltal, the bus driver told me that we could give them a call at Alp Selva when we want to be picked up, which according to my estimation would be around 5.30pm
    So the Wanderbus people are informed about us coming.

    4. It is adviced to bring along warm clothes.


    Thanks.

    Sab

    Hitesh has pointed out that I did not indicate where exactly we start from.
    As the hike starts in Vals, Zervreila, get the ticket to this place. Consequently, we are arriving in Vals, Zervreila at 9.30am.
    Cheers,
    Sab
