Semi-difficult hike across the high valley Fondei to the clear Grünsee lake, passing the Wals houses and green Alpine meadows.
Starting point is the restaurant Strassberg (1,919m). Turn right just after the Brunnenhütte (fountain hut) and keep hiking slightly uphill along farms and always accompanied by "Mungga-Pffifen" (marmot whisltes). At the saddle (1,981m) the trail turns left and ascents towards the Duranna pass. Before the top of the pass you will find the Grünsee lake (2,110m) in a trough. The lake is just perfect to take a short swim and cool down.
Einen kurzen Rast, in einem der Berggasthäuser auf der Sonnenterrasse, geniessen.
