The idea would be to go hiking for about 4 to 5 hours in the Swiss National Park. This park is a protected area where you can see nature at its best. We will not be affected by the hunting season as hunting is not permitted in the National Park. Hiking is done all the time on an altitude between 1800 and 2200 meters - the hiking trial is technically easy and almost there are not too many altitude meters to be crossed. We will hike from P1 to P9.
The area is in a remote part of Switzerland (on border with Italy) so it takes a while to get there.
We will take the following trains
Zurich 6.37 am – Landquart 7.41 am
Landquart 7.49 am – Saglians 8.53 am
Saglians 8.56 am – Zernez 9.06
Zernez 9.15 am – start hike 9.26 am
Late afternoon we will take the train/bus back.
To bring along:
* You are doing this hike on your own responsibility - the organizer is not taking any responsibility and declines all responsibility for claims/damages.
* Suncream / Sunglasses
* Good mood/Smile
* Snacks, water, food for along the way
* As we are in the mountain and weather can change any time please bring along rain-gear
PS If there is minimal rain the hike will go through as planned however in case the weather forecast provides for significant rain then I will cancel this hike.
* As we need to do a bus to the start of the hike, it is important that I know exactly how many people will come. I will make a group reservation (at no cost for you) however in case our group does not show up I get charged several hundred francs, so it is important that once you sign up and say that you are coming, you will be effectively coming. To avoid that people change ideas last minute and I get stuck with reservations, I will charge a flat fee of 10 francs for cancellations made within 1 week of the hike (from saturday 12 october onwards).
