On the descent of about 880 meters in altitude difference, you have a beautiful view of the deep blue waters of Lej Diavolezza and the vista that opens up to the south.

From the Diavolezza top station you walk to the top station of the Chairlift. The mountain trail takes us along the Sass Queder ridge down to the Lej da Diavolezza. The trail to the lake requires your full concentration as it is often wet and in many parts slippery. Shortly before the lake, we branch off to the right and very soon we reach the Val d'Arlas. The Val d'Arlas was once covered by a glacier. There we begin the slow steady descent across the meadows of the valley's southern flank until we reach the lower Alp Bondo; we then continue along the railway track of the Rhaethian Line to the valley station of the Diavolezza cable car.
