The hike begins in Maloja and ends in Chiavenna (or vice versa). The hike starts at 1,800 altitude meters and heads down to 300m: during the hike you can slowly observe how the landscape changes from alpine to almost Mediterranean at the end.

In the past, smugglers crossed the border on these high ridgeways. Today, the route across the border is much more comfortable, but you still can‘t forget your passport (or valid identity card). One can choose from two different routes, which not only familiarize you with the natural beauty of the area, but also with its art and history. Depending on the length of the chosen route, you can walk the trail in three or four stages.
