The starting point for the approximately one-hour hike is Resgia in Zuoz. This short and entertaining circular hike has a lot to offer: a spectacular waterfall, the Ladder to Heaven - a staircase built in 1931 and steep as the sky - the awe-inspiring panoramic view of the mountain giants, the bridge over the Arpiglia stream, pure nature experience.

And as an inviting conclusion, a Bbarbecue site invites you to review the adventures you have experienced together - after which it is not far back to the starting point.
And to make sure that it doesn't get too adventurous, remember to wear sturdy shoes and weatherproof clothing, because the mountains include changes in the weather and rough terrain as well as unique natural experiences.
