The Bernina or Heidi Express from Chur or Davos to Tirano in Italy via the Bernina Pass using the Rhaetian Railway is an incredible scenic journey. The very best part of the journey begins after Engadine as the train approaches the top of the Bernina Pass. Without cog wheels the train ascends an incline of 70/1000 towards the magnificent alpine scenery; glaciers, snow and heady peaks surround the 2253 metre (7400 ft) pass crossing. At Montobello the Morteratsch Glacier is seen and the majestic ice-crowned heads of Bernina group.</b></font>
