This stage begins with a leisurely walk along the Lago Bianco. Behind the dam wall, the path leads into a wide path past Lej Nair and Lej Pitschen. At the height of Lej Pitschen, the leisurely part is over. The path then branches off to the left and climbs over alpine meadows up to Lej d'Arlas and then goes steeper on to Lej da Diavolezza. It's a good opportunity to take a break at the turquoise-blue lake because afterwards the path climbs up in rocky terrain to Diavolezza and to the finish point of this day's stage, the Berghaus Diavolezza. If you would like to hike more, you can continue and go past the Berghaus, over a ridge and up to Munt Pers (about 1 hour hiking time). The return to the Berghaus is on the same path. If you walked enough for the day, treat yourself to a wellness break in the Jacuzzi on the Berghaus's panorama terrace.

Safety information

After Lej da Diavolezza, there may still be snowfields in certain places until July, and in October, there may be some ice. Either will make the path more difficult. A possible alternative would be to walk along the Lej da Diavolezza up the ski slope to Diavolezza.
