As you leave the village, the ascent begins. Following the signpost for Cavaglia, the path winds its way up through alpine meadows and through deciduous and coniferous woods. If the time allows, it is worth visiting the glacier garden in Cavaglia. Not only are the beautifully cleaned glacier mills impressive, but the view down to the Val Poschiavo is also spectacular. Past the Cavaglia railway station, the Bernina Tour takes you through the gorge and pass Lagh da Palü up to the famous Alp Grüm curve of the Rhaetian Railway. A stop at Alp Grüm is a must in one of the two lovely panoramic restaurants (Alp Grüm station or Belvedere restaurant).
Once you reach the Lago Bianco, it is not far to the end point of this stage at the Ospizio Bernina station.
