Senda Dal Diavel - Tour to Munt Pers
Speaking of the devil... In the Engadin, this would usually allude to the beautiful Diavolezza mountain, which lures alpinists onto its slopes due to its proximity to the majestic Bernina massif. But now it has a rival: the "Senda dal Diavel" trail is a devilishly daring climbing route for skilled mountain climbers. Set against a magnificent backdrop, it leads from the bottom station to Lej da las Collinas and via the rugged eastern ridge up to Munt Pers. In between, easy climbing passages and exposed places with securing aids make you feel like a professional mountaineer. As a result, helmets and crampons are essential. From the summit, the trail leads down to the Berghaus Diavolezza, and from here by gondola back to the valley.
