Winter hiking in Val Müstair
We can hear our breathing and the crunch of fresh snow under our boots – and nothing else. All around us, the Alpine winter reveals its majesty. Animal tracks emerge from the pine forest, dart across the snowy plain and disappear behind a hill – it seems the wildlife, too, seeks solitude. Far behind us lies the picturesque mountain village of Lü – surprisingly far, in fact. We must have lost our sense of time and distance somewhere along the way. Here in the great outdoors we don’t need anything other than a narrow winter hiking trail, a trail marker now and then and the knowledge that we can always catch a comfortable PostBus or Sportbus back to the village. The rest is pure wilderness, far away from everyday life.
