Diavolezza - Munt Pers Hike

How difficult is this hike to the Munt Pers? We are generally fit and have done hikes in the past (although not at this elevation). Is this hike a very steep climb? And are general hiking shoes sufficient to cover this path? Is the path generally marked clearly?

Not difficult, no steep climb.

Hiking boots are fine and yes, the path is marked clearly.

Make sure you take the panorama trail (…stmoritz.ch/sommer/…) It's a relatiely short hike, but absolutely rewarding as you have a 360 degrees panorama at the top. Try to go early, as sometimes in August there is really a procession of people going up and down and it takes time to let them pass where the path is narrow. It's however not that steep and no climbing involved. I would recommend hiking boots, not just sneakers, as you walk on rocks and sometimes not fixed stone plates, so protect your ankles. For details see: walkingswitzerland.com/walks/….

There is a new mountain climbin tour to Munt Pers difficulty T4 - see …stmoritz.ch/sommer/… so make sure you take the hike and not the tour. The hike should be signaled in yellow, whereas the tour most probably is signaled in blue.

If you are still fit after Munt Pers and want to do more, there is an easy halfhour ascent to Sass Queder in the opposite direction for another interesting panorama view.

As you mention in your other post driving up to the Bernina Pass: the valley station of the Diavolezza gondola (called Bernina Diavolezza) is the second last station before the Bernina pass (calles Ospizio Bernina), just minutes to go. It could be easily combined.
