Winter hiking tour Tschiertschen–Jochalp–Parpan

Up and down in Tschiertschen (GR)

The hike goes from Tschiertschen to the Jochalp, Foppa and forward to Parpan.

The winter hike from Tschiertschen to Parpan starts at the Waldstafel station of the Tschiertschen mountain railway and leads first to the Hüenerchöpf peak in wide hairpin bends. The next section to the Joch should definitely be groomed - it is important to inquire in advance, and not to follow the ski slope. The route continues along the steep foothills of the Gürgaletsch in lively ups and downs and offers a high alpine ambiance. After the Joch, the route leads towards Parpan with a nice view and the sun on your face. If you run out of energy during the long descent, the “alpine herdsman" Adrian Hirt has a nutritious product in stock in his small shop in Tschiertschen where he sells homemade local specialities: hemp seeds, the power food par excellence. Meanwhile, the mountain world provides the intoxicating effect.
