In the Canton of Graubünden, flat moors cover about 3,000 hectares of land. And in these flat moorlands around 10% of Graubünden's flora and fauna can be found. Therefore, these must be protected to the largest extent possible.
The hike from Murtèl to Pontresina crossing the Fuorcla Surlej is a classic in the Upper Engadine. The mountain panorama is simply breathtaking: in the beginning of the hike it is the glaciers of the Bernina Range that catch one's eye, then it is the icy pyramid Piz Roseg. Further down in the Roseg Valley one may well chance upon wild animals that still roam here.
