Corvatsch, CH

Piz Corvatsch is a mountain in the Bernina Range of the Alps, overlooking Lake Sils and Lake Silvaplana in the Engadin region of the canton of Graubünden. With an elevation of 3,303 m, it is the highest point on the range separating the main Inn valley from the Val Roseg.


The Corvatsch is the highest mountain peak accessible with the Engadine mountain rail. Fantastic views over the high mountains are yours to enjoy from the panorama restaurant here. From the Murtèl middle station half way up, you can take a short hike to the Fuorcla Surlej mountain guesthouse and admire the reflection of the Biancograt ridge in the shimmering blue surface of the adjacent lake. You can also descend from here into the Val Roseg valley (Pontresina).

Whoever would like to explore the scenic beauties of the Upper Engadine on foot will get their money’s worth at Corvatsch. A vast number of worthwhile hikes lead from Sils, Silvaplana, St. Moritz or Pontresina towards and around the Corvatsch region.

Soon enough one moves above the forest line and enjoys splendid views of glaciers and lakes. Whether sportive and performance-oriented or for desire and pleasure, every interest finds a suitable route in the Corvatsch hiking area.
