New Meetup: Davos Hike

From: Patrick

Announcing a new Meetup for Zurich Hike & Outdoor!

What: Davos Hike

When: October 31,[masked]:00 AM

Z?rich Hauptbahnhof

Dear All,

I had a look at the Davos website and the weather seem to be partly sunny on saturdays with raindrops on sunday. Also at 3000 and 4000 meters temperatures above zero are measured so normally there should not be snow. So I suggest to meet at 8: 15 am to take a train to Davos dorf.

Zurich HB: departure 7: 12 am -> 8.32 am Landquart
departure Landquart: 8. 47 am- > 9.25 am klosters

I suggest to do following hike:

We take the cable- car up to Gotschnagrat (2290 meters). Here we can get a coffee before we start walking on the Panoramaweg which brings us via the Parsennhutte-> Mittelstation (2200 meters). This part of the hike is approx. 2 hours. From here we continue via Obere Buschalp (1980 meters)-> Untere Buschalp (1850 meters)-> Strela-alp (1921 meters)-Schatzalp (1861). Here we can have a drink before we walk down to Davos platz via the sledge trail (=quite popular in the winter). The second part is about 2 to 2.5 hours. Total hike is 4.5. hours.

For those of you who participated in the halloween-party, the hike might wake you up ))--

We take the train back from Davos platz or davos dorf in late afternoon to arrive back in zurich at reasonable time e.g. the 4.02 pm train departing davos (arrival in zurich HB at 6.23 pm), or the 3.02 pm train departing davos (arriving at 5.23 pm in zurich Hb).

to bring along:

Good shoes ( although the weather forecast does not say so, it can rain/snow at these altitudes during this time of year)
Rain jacket
Smile /good mood
