The Schwellisee lake is located on 1,933m above sea level on the Aroser Alp, south-west of Innerarosa along the Plessur river.
The Schwellisee lake is located on 1,933m above sea level on the Aroser Alp, south-west of Innerarosa along the Plessur river. The Swiss stone pine logs in the lake are proof of the former Swiss pine forest that stretched far above the lake and was cleared by the Wals colony. From Innerarosa the lake can be reached within a gentle hike of 1 hour. If desired the hike may be prolonged to the Älplisee lake as well as to the Erzhorn and Aroser Rothorn.
