FATMAP difficulty grade
The starting point is Sta.
From here the trail leads along a forest road through the larch forest up into Val Vau.
Here follows a turnoff to the steep but varied ascent to Lai da Rims, past an impressive waterfall.
After two steep steps, the plateau with the emerald blue lake comes into view.
From here there are two variants: Variant 1: Continue on a demanding trail, which at the end leads over scree to the Piz Umbrail (3032m.a.s.l.) and from there on an alpine mountain path back down to the Umbrailpass.
From the bus stop "Zoll" the post bus will take you back to Sta.
Maria (Attention: only few connections, pay attention to the timetable and time of arrival!) Option 2: Continue along the Lai da Rims and then up to the saddle of Piz Praveder (detour to the summit possible - great view!).
From there, a stony, sometimes somewhat slippery path leads down into the magnificent Val Mora to the alpine road.
This leads over 8km and 800m altitude difference back to Sta.
