1st day: From Caischavedra the route leads us through a small raised bog and through alpine rose trees to Lag Serein, a clear and blue eye amidst green alpine pastures. From here we change to a blue and white marked alpine hiking trail. The landscape becomes rockier and the last meters to the Brunnipass require all our strength and concentration. We even have to be dizzy-free when we hang on ropes on the other side and climb down to the glacier via airy ladders. We are happy about our pimple, with which we attach a kick on the aperen glacier from time to time. Otherwise, the markings of the hut keeper lead us safely over the mostly firmed glacier to the Cavardiras hut.


2: We continue our hike and descend east into the Val Cavardiras. The valley is still in the mountains, it is rocky and barren in the first part, but soon has green spots and alpine pastures. At the crossing from the Val Cavardiras to the Val Russein we reach a wide natural road. Below the Barcuns reservoir we must not miss the junction to Cumpadials and Sumvitg. So we reach the village and the train station in about 40 minutes. The train brings us back to Disentis.


The overnight stay must be registered. If we carry up a little fresh fruit or vegetables, the hut keepers will be very grateful.


In July/August the Brunnifirn is still burnt, but later mostly snow-free and icy.


From the panoramic restaurant in Caischavedra we follow the shortest path towards Lag Serein. Here we branch off at the alpine hut on the blue and white marked alpine hiking trail in the direction of Brunni Pass. Over the Brunni Pass we cross the narrow ridge and descend to the Brunnifirn. Now we follow the markings of the hut keeper over the burnt glacier to the hut. On marked hiking trails we continue through the Val Cavardiras towards Val Russein where we cover a longer part of the path on a natural road. Below Barcuns we turn left onto the trail to Cumpadials and Sumvitg. The Rhaetian Railway station is located between the villages of Cumpadials and Sumvitg. The train runs every hour in both directions
