Leg 2: From Zernez to Val Mstair
Through the Ofen Pass From Zernez, the route goes through the Ofen Pass towards South Tyrol. For leisure cyclists: Because, among other reasons, there is no purpose-built bike path, we recommended that to you do not attempt this very difficult ascent, which rises to an elevation of 2,149 metres. Instead, we suggest that you take one of the many buses that run to Mstair (bus schedules on: www.sbb.ch). One youre in the village, the UNESCO-protected Convent of St. John is an absolute must.
Approx. 40 km
