Pass by the Gasthaus Berninahaus in the direction of Diavolezza and walk a short distance along the pass road before an Alpine trail turns off to the left towards the bridge and continues on the other side into the Val da Fain. The Val da Fain is famous for its wonderful Alpine flowers, and practically every square metre is inhabited by marmots. After a good half-hour, the trail forks off. You now follow a steep zigzag path across Alpine meadows and past marmot burrows to the rocky terrain of the Giand'Albris. After traversing the slope via the narrow path, the route, which is secured by ropes, takes you in the direction of Fuorcla Pischa. You will have earned a rest after all this exertion, and during your break you might spot an ibex on the rocks. There is a good chance that you will, because Piz Albris is home to one of the biggest ibex colony in Switzerland. The route continues across scree and over Fuorcla Pischa. Towards the middle of Crasta Languard, the road branches off to the left. After traversing the corrie, the trail descends steeply to Lej Languard. From here, it is only 30 minutes or so to the Paradise hut, where delicious cakes await you. These should give you sufficient energy to tackle the descent to Pontresina. Remember to discover Pontresina's Ibex Paradise. www.pontresina.ch/ibex-paradise

Note(s)
This hike is only suitable for the sure-footed and those with a head for heights.

Leider passt die Landkarte nicht zur Wanderbeschreibung. Die angegebenen Daten gelten für die Wanderung, wenn Pontresina als Start gewählt wird. Bei der Wanderung, wie beschrieben, ab Bernina Sout, sind ca. 200hm im Anstieg weniger zu bewältigen. Außerdem kann die Wanderung verkürzt werden, wenn ab Alp Languard der Sessellift zum "Abstieg" benutzt wird. Es wird ca. 1h gespart. Wir haben tatsächlich eine kleine Herde Steinböcke gesehen!!!!
