From the starting point at Langwies railway station, the walk starts through the village and then uphill to the Skihaus Casanna. Then it continues over lush green plateaus to Blackter Fürggli, the highest point of the hike. This is followed by a crossing that has been used for centuries and connects the Alps and higher-lying settlements. On the high trail you reach Fondei via alpine meadows. Follow the path down via Pirigen and the Fondei high valley until you reach the starting point in Langwies again. 

Author’s recommendation

Build an extension to the "Steinmännli" (stone man) on the Blackter Fürggli.
