The hike to the Lej da la Pischa begins quietly. Take the bus or train to the Bernina Suot stop.
Walk along the pass road for a short distance in the direction of Diavolezza until you take the path on the left through the Val da Fain. The Val da Fain is famous for its beautiful alpine flora and for being the habitat of numerous marmots.
After a good half hour, you come to a fork in the path. The trail zigzags its way across alpine meadows to the rocks of the Grand'Albris. The narrow path, secured with ropes, leads to the Fuorcla Pischa. At the end of this effort you deserve a break at the spectacular "milk lakes". With a bit of luck, you will also see some stables. Switzerland's largest ibex colony lives on the rocks of Piz Albris. The trail continues through the Fuorcla Pischa rock gorge and then to the left.
After crossing the gorge, the trail descends to Lej Languard. In about 30 minutes you will reach the Paradis hut, where delicious cakes are served. Have a rest and recharge your batteries for the final descent to Pontresina.
Alternative: Ascent from the top station of the chairlift to Lejs da la Pischa.
