DAVOS. 91. Route. 329
by the Slrela Pass, 4 hrs. (guide 7fr.); easy and interesting. — Altein-
grat (7808'), by Glaris, 4'/a hrs. (guide 8 fr.); easily ascended from Wiesen
also (p. 330). — "Schwarzhorn (10,338'). from the Fluela Pass, 3 hrs. (10 fr.),
see p. 327. — Pischahorn (9786'), by Tschuggen, 5>/2 hrs. (10 fr.), not dif¬
ficult. — Piz Vadret (10,567'), by the Scaletta Pass, 6 hrs., an interesting
glacier-expedition. — Hoch-Ducan (10,059'), from Sertig-Dbrfli, 6 hrs. (20 fr.),
difficult and very fatiguing.
From Davos to Scanfs over the Scaletta Pass, S'/2 hrs., attractive
(direct route from Davos to the Upper Engadine; novices only need a
guide). From Davos-Dorfli we follow the high-road to Davos-Platz for a
few hundred paces, turn to the left into the Dischma Valley, and reach (23/i
hrs.) the inn Im Diirrboden (659S'), with a fine view of the Scaletta
Glacier. To the left rises the Schwarzhorn (10,338'), ascended hence in
4 hrs. (better from the Fluela Pass, p. 327). The rough, stony path ascends
in 2 hrs. more to the Scaletta Pass (8592'), lying between the Kiihalphorn
(10,108') and the Scalettahorn (10,066'j. A hut affords shelter; view limited.
Descent, very steep at places, hut enlivened by waterfalls and views of
the lateral valleys with their glaciers, to the Alp Fonlauna (7211'), and
through the Sulsanna-Thal to (2>/2 hrs.) Sulsanna (poor inn) and C/2 hr.)
Capella in the Innthal; then to (l'/2 M.) Scanfs (p. 373).
To Bekgun over the Sertig Pass, 8 hrs., interesting (road to
Serting-Diirlli; then a bridle-path, without guide). About 1 M. to the
S. of Davos-Platz the road diverges from the Frauenkirch road to the left,
crosses the Landwasser, enters the pretty, wooded Sertig-Thai, and leads
past (2 M.) the small sulphur-bath of Clavadel (5460'; pens, i'/a fr.) and
many scattered chalets to (4 M.) Sertig-Dbrfli (6102'; Gadmer, rustic), with
the church of the valley. Above the village ('Hinter den Ecken') the valley
divides into the Ducan-Thal to the right, from which a fatiguing route
leads over the Ducan Pass (8763') to Filisur, and the KiihalpVial to the left,
through which the bridle-path now ascends to the (2'/s hrs.) Sertig Pass
(9062'), between the Kiihalphorn (see above) and the Hoch-Ducan (10,059').
Fine view of the Porchabella Glacier and Piz Kesch (11,228') towards the S.
We then descend to the right past the Raveisch Lakes and through the
Val Tuors to the chalets of Chiaclavuot (6106') and (cI hrs.) Bergiin (p. 352);
or we may descend from the pass to the left through the Val Sertig to
the (1 hr.) Alp Fonlauna (see above) and through the Sulsanna-Thal to
(4 hrs.) Scanfs (p. 373).
To Coire over the Strela Pass, 9-10 hrs., bridle-path to Langwies
(guide unnecessary); thence to Coire a carriage-road (diligence daily in
23/i, ascent 4 hrs.; 3 fr. 75c). From Davos-Platz the path ascends steeply
over the Strela Alp to the (2>/2 hrs.) Strela Pass (7799'), between the
Schiahorn (8901') and the Strela (8648'), with a superb view, and descends
on the right bank of the Plessur by Schmitten to (2 hrs.) Langwies (4519';
'Pens. Mattli, 5-6 fr.), the largest village in the Schanfigg-Thal. To the S.
opens the Arosa-Thal. |Bridle-path, chiefly through wood, first on the
right and then on the left bank of the Arosa, by Sonnenriiti, Litzenriiti,
and Rutland to (2 hrs.) Seegruben with its little lake ("Pens. Seehof,
pleasant for some stay, and two other pensions), and C/2 hr.) Arosa (6207';
"Kurhaus Arosa, pens. 6-7 fr.; Waldhaus, a large new inn), a pleasant summer
retreat picturesquely situated, whence the Weisshorn (8710') may be ascended
in 2'/2 hrs., and the Aroser Rothhorn (9794'), a splendid point of view,
in 3'/2 hrs. — Interesting pass from Arosa (6-7 hrs.; guide 10 fr.) to the W.,
between the Hbrnli and the Platlenhorn, to the head of the Urdenthul
where chamois abound); then over a pass to the N. of the Parpaner Weiss¬
horn to Parpan (p. 353).] Our route then runs high up on the N. slopes of
the Schanfigg-Thal in innumerable zigzags, crossing several deep ravines,
and leads by Peisl, St. Peter, Castiel (Post), Calfreisen, and Maladers to
(4>/2 hrs.) Coire (p. 322).
Below Davos are several torrents with their broad stony deposits.
The road follows the right side of the valley, which is sprinkled
with houses and chalets, in view of the tooth-like Tinzenhorn
