Schesaplana, 2.965 m | Brand

The mountain hike leads from the Lünerseebahn valley station via the "Böse Tritt" to the mountain station of the Lünerseebahn. The "Böse Tritt" is a little challenge and partly secured with ropes, but no problem for sure-footed hikers. Alternatively, you can shorten this section with the Lünerseebahn. From the mountain station, follow the Lünersee circular trail on the right side in the direction of Totalp Hütte. At the sign Lünersee Rundweg (No. 91.100) turn right uphill along the great rock massif in the direction of Totalp Hütte. From here the trail continues up to the summit of the Schesaplana, the highest peak in the Rätikon. The tour is rewarded with great views and a cozy stop at the Totalp hut before heading back along the same path. 

Author's recommendation

A short detour of about 25 minutes on foot from the Totalp hut to the Gamsluggen is recommended, as Lake Lünersee shows its most beautiful side here, namely in the shape of a heart. Return to the Totalp hut via the same path.

Equipment

Strong footwear, warm clothing, rain and sun protection and hiking poles are recommended. Cell phone for emergencies.
