all details
The hike along the historic Septimerpass street you are the traces of past centuries feet. After crossing the pass, you find yourself in another cultural region and are located in another valley, a different culture and a different language area. The buildings in Bivio and Casaccia, at the foot of Septimers, have today point to the once important trading routes. Not far from the summit the foundations of the former Hospice of St. Peter were discovered during excavations. Bivio and the Septimerpass Traces of past centuries are evident. Piz Lunghin is the only triple watershed in Europe.

Author's recommendation

Tip: From Septimerpass 300 ft in altitude up to Lunghin pass. You are at the only triple watershed: the Inn flows into the Danube (Black Sea), the Eva dal Sett into the Rhine (North Sea) and Maira in the Po (Adria).

Aufgrund der Instabilität der Felsen im Gebiet Boca Naira oberhalb von Casaccia, ist der Weg zur Alp Maroz Dora und zum Septimerpass bis auf Weiteres gesperrt.

Eine Umleitung für die Wanderer/Mountainbiker ist signalisiert. Mountainbiker müssen für diesen Abschnitt aber vom Bike absteigen.

Für Pferde ist die Umleitung nicht geeignet und nicht passierbar.
