The Val Roseg is a valley of the Swiss Alps, located on the north side of the Bernina Range in the canton of Graubünden (Engadin). The valley is drained by the Ova da Roseg, a tributary of the Flaz (Inn basin), at Pontresina. Most of the valley is part of an exclave of the municipality of Samedan. Only the bottom of Val Roseg lies in the municipality of Pontresina.The main locality, outside Pontresina on the bottom of the valley, is Roseg (1,999 m) at the end of the main road. Two mountain huts owned by the Swiss Alpine Club are located in the valley near the glaciers: the Coaz Hut (2,610 m) and the Tschierva Hut (2,584 m).The Val Roseg is surrounded by the highest mountains of Graubünden and Eastern Switzerland. The highest are Piz Bernina (4,049 m), Piz Scerscen (3,971 m) and Piz Roseg (3,937 m). The southern upper valley is heavily glaciated: the Roseg Glacier on the west side and the Tschierva Glacier on the east side. The lake Lej da Vadret, which formed at the bottom of the Roseg Glacier during the 20th century, is the largest of the valley.

    This Valley is reachable from Pontresina or from Piz Corvatsch cable car (is better) - a pretty long hike but that puts us eyes - a lot of people on the first part of the way from Pontresina - since this locality a carriage service (bofff) is set up to reach the restaurant located 5/6 Km in the Valley - a must if you pass in Engadin

    The first hike in the Engadine was Val Roseg. Since then we come ever back here - a "must". This time we are migrated into the Valley and from there continue on the Tai forest on the Fuorcla Surlej. Simply unique.

    The bicycle in the Val Roseg MWt is delicious. In any case, to the restaurant and then on the path to the Brook transition. After that it is difficult to just in front of the Lake. Along the Lake is nice and easy. The view is super and you're really in the high mountains. The Department is going to rap.
