We start our tour in the pretty hamlet Soliva, which is inhabited by only one person all year round. We follow the snow-covered road, which winds uphill in wide bends and which is usually clearly recognizable, as there is rarely a lot of snow on this southern slope. During the ascent we take time to look into the valley towards the Lukmanier Pass and the ever smaller houses of Curaglia and Soliva. In between, birch trees line the path and in Mises dil Plaun well-kept maiensässe duck under the weight of the snow. Towards the west we get a glimpse into the Tujetsch with Sedrun and up to the Oberalppass. Further up, in Fontauna Rodunda, we look for a nice place in front of one of the Maiensässe and have a picnic. The mountain range in front of us impresses: the mighty Piz Muraun has almost something majestic and the Medelser chain, which closes the Val Plattas, is very impressive with its glacier. On the way back we mostly stick to the ascent track, but in between we can whirl up the snow under our snowshoes also over the open field. 


A paved road leads to Soliva. The slopes above Soliva are very sunny and can become almost snow-free in between.


The hiking trail from Curaglia to Soliva is closed due to a debris flows. If you arrive by public transport to Curaglia, hike on the access road to Soliva for about 1 hour without snowshoes. The route is marked, but those unfamiliar with the area are advised to print out the topo map for the tour and carry it with them. 


From Soliva we follow the road in some bends to Mises dil Plaun and Fontauna Rodunda, mostly on a clearly visible snow-covered road. Before the forest begins, we turn around.
