A well laid-out, but narrow mountain path takes you from Diavolezza mountain station up to Munt Pers.

The terrain is a little steep in parts and best for those who are surefootedness. The fantastic view across the Pers and Morteratsch Glaciers, Piz Palü, Piz Bellavista and Piz Bernina (at 4,049m/13,284ft the highest mountain in the Eastern Alps) is simply awesome. The return hike leads along the same route. To put the icing on this panoramic cake, you should set out on the hike before sunrise (equipped with a headlamp) and experience the unforgettable spectacle of the brand new day dawning on the Bernina Massif. It is also possible to stay the night on the Diavolezza.

There is a legend associated with Munt Pers, which gave Diavolezza its name: «La Diavolezza» - the beautiful she-devil.

The panorama is already breathtaking at the starting point of this hike. And it gets even better along the way to the top. On the summit of Munt Pers, there is a beautiful 360 degrees panorama. It’s surely worth the hike, although the most spectacular part of the panorama -the Piz Palü, Piz Bellavista and Piz Morteratsch- is already visible along the route. We found some small fields of snow just beside the path (we hiked it in August). One thing to keep in mind: although the text talks about “surefootedness”, there is also a label “easy” on this hike. One thing is for sure: the path is anything but easy. Some hiking experience is certainly recommended, as well as sturdy hiking boots.
