The Lukmanier Pass (Passo del Lucomagno in Italian, Cuolm Lucmagn in Romansh) connects Biasca (Ticino) with Disentis/Mustér (Graubünden) at an altitude of 1973 metres.
The whole area is nicknamed Heidiland, as Maienfeld is the village where Heidi lived...

At the top of Upper Engadin (Graubünden), lakes of St-Moritz, Champfèr, Silvaplana, and Sils are four jewels in a magnificent setting. Lake Silvaplana, known for its predictable winds, is a very popular place for windsurfing, kitesurfing and dinghy-sailing.
The Surselva is the westernmost valley in Graubünden, where the Rhine flows from its source at the Oberalp Pass. Oriented more or less west to east, it is a very sunny valley dotted with small villages.
Val Bregaglia
From the last village of the Upper Engadin valley, Maloja, the road dives abruptly in a deep valley, Val Bregaglia, along the steep curves of the Maloja Pass. And then you are South of the Alps, on your way to Lake Como and Italy.
