Description

Our hike takes us from Disentis station to the opposite side of the valley to the year-round inhabited village Cavardiras. First on a forest road and later on a hiking trail we quickly gain height and we can always take a look at Disentis between the fir trees.

It will be exciting when we reach the top of the Bova Gronda. Here a mighty rockfall in 1689 caused great devastation. He destroyed the hamlets of Brulf and Valentin and 22 people died. For three hours, the mountain fall jammed the Rhine; Fortunately, there was no tidal wave.

After this demolition point, the forest gradually clears and we hike through alpine rose trees until we arrive on the round top of the Alp Soliva. The view is fantastic, the glaciers of the Oberalpstock and the Tödi are flashing. The meadows are littered with flowers and invite you to take a nap, it is quiet and peaceful, only from time to time we hear the bells of grazing cows.  

Again on the way, we hike downhill past the Alp Soliva, followed by a shady forest and soon we see the houses of Soliva. We sit briefly on the bench in front of the small chapel before taking the last piece to Curaglia under the hiking boots. From Curaglia, the post bus takes us back to Disentis.
