Description

With the PostBus you drive from Sta.Maria Posta to the Pass Umbrail (2500 m.a.s.l.M), where the starting point of this spectacular hike is. After a climb of about 1:15 hours you reach the Piz Umbrail - the highest point of the hike (3033 m above sea level.M). The subsequent descent leads in 1:30 hours to the Lai da Rims - the well-known emerald blue lake on the plateau. After a short distance along the lake, the hike goes in 1:15 hours up to the saddle of Piz Praveder (for a detour to Piz Praveder return about 45 minutes extra must be calculated).  Then follows the descent into the Val Döss Radond from which you meet in 0:45 on the forest road Val Mora. Follow the Val Mora along the forest road to Val Vau and after 01:30 hours you will reach the PostBus stop Val Vau (not served every day). After another 01:15 you reach the village of Sta.Maria.
