Are you tired of watching (swimming at) the Olympics? Then this could be an alternative.
The idea is to do a beautiful hike around Keschhuette from Chants back to Chants which takes 4,5 hours (excluding stops and meals). The idea is to have lunch at the keschhuette; which is situated at 2,625 meters above sea level. The hut will probably be reached around 1pm, so for those who cant wait and are hungry before, I suggest you bring some snacks along.
The idea is to do following hike : Chants- Val da ravai- ravai seen- sella da ravai- val dal tschuvel- keschhuette -chants- Bergun. The hike from chants to chants is 17 kilometer and 920 meters height difference. The distance from chants to Bergun is another 7km which can be done by those who are still fit, the others can take the bus. The 20 kilometer hike is "sportlich" and easily feasible for seasoned hikers. Although the hike is not difficult or technically complicated, I would not recommend the hike to people who never do sports or only recently started hiking since we are hiking around the altitude of 2000 meters and maintain a certain speed.
We will start the hike in Chants around 9.40 am . In order to get there the following trains are available:
Zurich hb - departure at 6.37 am arrival at 7.52 chur (train)
chur departure at 7.58 am arrival at 9.13 am in Bergun (train)
bergun departure at 9.15 am arrival at 9.32 am in Chans
PS: if these hours are too early for some of you, then you might want to consider staying overnight the evening before
We will take the train back from Bergun at 16.47 arriving at 19.23 in Zurich
Please note that I need to advise the Keschhuette in advance if a larger group is coming, so they can prepare themselves with food. Hence please sign up early so that we can give estimate to the warden of the hut as to how many will be coming.
To bring along:
* Smile, laughter, good mood;
* Sturdy walking shoes
* Raingear (weather can change at all times in the mountains)
* Water and snacks
PS- Please note that this hike will not take place if it is raining cats and dogs. On thursday evening I should be able to confirm whether or not this hike takes place as planned.
