Among this magnificent scenery, foodies and gourmets are able to discover the delights of the local cuisine on culinary excursions, not to mention the beauty and uniqueness of summer in the mountains.
The legendary gourmet restaurant CheCha sits enthroned high above St. Moritz and is reached either on foot after a leisurely hike or, more directly and easily, from the Chantarella station.
