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.
