From the Monteratsch Hotel it is about a three km walk up to the base of the glacier. The walking path is very easy walk in summer, alongside the glacial river, through an area covered in wildflowers. The tree line in the valley gives an indication of how deep the glacier once was. Markers all along the valley show the extent of the retreat of the glacier since 1878. Once at the glacier we chose not to climb up any higher, having seen several chunks of ice fall. Another great view of the glacier can be had from the top at the Diavolezza ChairLift
