Tschima da Flix

July, 5th, 2019. We hiked from Chamanna Jenatsch along the Agnel Glacier to the pass caaled Fuorcla de Flix. From this point you already have a marvellous view over the valley Surses. Even if there are some patches of snow, you could already descend to (or ascend from the Fuorcle d’Agnel to) Marmorera or Alp Flix. For some hikers, it might have been tiring enough, so they could turn around and head back to de Chamanna Jenatsch.

But the inferior summit Tschmia da Flix is only 250 m up, and rather easy going. So we made it to the point 3301m. From here you have the Tschima da Flix in good view, and, what’s much better, a stunning view to the Bernina Mountains.
Just below your feet you see the Calderas Glacier, Piz Calderas 3397 m is just behind!

Changing weather conditions…

To be in the mountains, to come to Chamanna Jenatsch… and to have perfect weather conditions, blue sky, sunshine, no breeze… that’s what most hikers want.

But if unfortunately you have done the hike, with clouds blocking the views to the summits, or even fog coming in… well, maybe you are a photographer and you’ll be able to take some shots the sunshine most paperazzi will not get!

Marmots at Chamanna Jenatsch

During your hike to Chamanna Jenatsch you’ll be aware of marmots whistling. The little guys never forget to warn all other animals from approaching danger…

The marmots living around Chamanna Jenatsch are less frightened, due to regular presents of hikers. So, maybe, you’ll take your camera and you’ll try to get a good picture!
