Description

Piz Languard (3263 m.a.s.l.) is one of the most beautiful panoramic mountains in the Upper Engadine – and cannot be reached by mountainbike. However, it can be combined into a first-class Bike&Hike route, which should only be done in the off-season or in the off-season because of the many hikers.

The route to Piz Languard starts in Pontresina and climbs up the Montebello curve towards the Bernina Pass. In Bernina Suot turn left into the gravel road up to Val da Fain. This is a well-known mountainbike route, but we leave it again after a few metres and then climb up on a trail to Fuorcla Pischa. Here the bike is carried about 600 meters in altitude. The rest of the tour compensates for the strain! We start with the wonderful singletrail along the Crasta Languard, which climbs slightly to the turnoff to the summit. Here you deposit your bike and walk up to the summit. The reason for this is the stunning view of the Bernina massif. But the path is so steep and stony that it would only be possible to ride the bike for a short period. The trail down to Alp Languard is extraterrestrially good, as is the later descent back to Pontresina.

Attention: There are many hikers in this area, and mountainbikers are not very welcome creatures. Therefore, the route should only be taken at off-peak times or in the low season!
