8km - 4.00 h - 1.400 hm - medium
The trail starts at the Glacier Hotel Grawand at 3,212 metres above sea level. Once you reached the top with the glacier cable car, it is worth taking a detour to the "Iceman Ötzi Peak" viewing platform before the actual hike. Afterwards, the trail leads past the panorama restaurant of the Glacier Hotel Grawand.
After a 35-minute walk, hikers reach the glacier lake. From there, the trail continues to the "Bella Vista" refuge - at 2,845 metres above sea level. Below the hut terrace along the Plattensteig trail, the path continues downwards into the wide cirque. At the turnoff to the Palla Bianca, continue towards the valley along the secured 'Hüttenweg' trail. Finally, you pass a sparse larch forest and return to the valley floor near Maso Corto - at 2,011 meters.
