The Lej da Diavolezza is the perfect place to take a break, and you will surely have earned one, because the trail to the lake requires concentration and also traverses a steep section. The beautiful surroundings and the flora and fauna are an absolute delight. Muots Ravulaunas, across whose slopes the trail continues, is unusual in that it is home to ptarmigan, and if you are very lucky you might see one. Following the slope down, you arrive at the Diavolezza valley station and the end of this adventurous hike, which requires surefootedness.
