Piz Lunghin and the Triple Watershed

Not far away (1.8km) from the Torre Belvedere Nature Centre (Maloja, Canton Grisons),is the only triple watershed in Europe. The Piz Lunghin lies at 2 780 m. The Lunghin Pass is a special place: each drop of rain can run off in three directions:

Northwards with the Julia and the Rhine into the North Sea, southwards via the Maira and the Po into the Mediterranean, or eastwards via the Inn and the Danube into the Black Sea.
