Excursion to the Palü glacier with mountain guide

A circular hike under the north wall of the 1000 m high Palü glacier - so close to the Palü.
From the hut Diavolezza we walk around Piz Trovat to the glacier Pers. On the way we have a magnificent view of the Bernina pass with the Lago Bianco. After a short break for a drink we continue our walk on the Pers glacier with the imposing Cambren chasms towering above us. After another hour on the glacier, we reach the large lateral moraine and climb back up to Diavolezza on a steep path. From the panoramic terrace we once again admire our circular route and the impressive glacier world of the Bernina massif.

The highlights:

The circular route under the 1000 m high north face of the Palü.
View of the four-thousand-metre-highest peak in Graubünden, the Piz Bernina.
Start and finish on the most beautiful terrace in the world
An experience for the whole family
