    Etape vraiment superbe, même si elle est exigeante, particulièrement par cette année de neige! Accueil excellent et superbe vue au refuge Cà Runcasch.

    Possibilité de logement au couvent, Frs 65 nuit et petit déjeuner. Sinon assez cher au village. Pour renseignements et repas, le patron du restaurant "Motrice" est très serviable et on y mange très bien.

    Possibility of housing at the convent, Frs 65 night and breakfast. Otherwise expensive enough in the village. For information and meals, the boss of the restaurant "Motrice" is very helpful and we eat very well.

    You may consider staying at Refugio Runcash (rooms only). Zoia is near a parking lot, and crowded with noisy tourists that want to experience a night at a hut.

    We began our Via Alpina hike in Poschiavo and started with this stage. It took substantially longer than anticipated (~ 11 hrs) - was raining, so that contributed, but also because after Pass Campagneda is a long, tricky descent down a rock fall. From Poschiavo station one can order a PostAuto Bus (min. 1 hour in advance) up to Selva to avoid the first 400 m climb out of town - I strongly recommend doing this to ensure reaching Campo Moro before dark

    Der Anstieg ist lang. Der Weg über die Ref. Christina ist ein Umweg. Wem es zu lang ist, der läuft direkt zum Camp Moro (einfach vom Pass aus gesehen gerade aus) und unten an der Alpe Campagne, wo man auf die Schotterstrasse trifft, rechts weg.

    The climb is long. The way of the REF. Christina is a detour. It is too long, which runs directly to the camp of Moro (easily seen from the pass just came out) and below on the Alpe Campagne, where it meets the dirt road, right away.
