Sunrise hike Chünetta

Sunrise hike Chünetta - Early morning high above Val Morteratsch

At sunrise we are on the Chünetta, a wonderful vantage point just 30 minutes from our start at Morteratsch station. In the glow of the first rays of sunshine, we enjoy the view of the high glacier mountains and the incredible tranquillity of nature. We continue into the valley, towards the glacier. Along individual tracks and partly in pathless terrain over the Chünetta sur and the Stevel da Boval we hike a little higher than the official hiking trail. Then we head downhill and get closer and closer to the glacier tongue of the Morteratsch glacier. After a last short but steep ascent, we reach the charming SAC hut in Val Morteratsch. The Bovalhütte is the perfect place for our lunch break, the view from the terrace is masterful. After lunch, the mountain guide says goodbye to the group and we end the guided hike here. Those who wish can linger at the Boval hut, even spend the night there and continue the next day, or hike directly along the marked trail out of the valley to Morteratsch railway station.
