Stunning, breathtaking. Easy walking right up to the glacier. Possibility to cross the glacier from Diavolezza (can be reached by cable car).

It was just amazing to see the ice there looking like rocks. The walk there is also worth it but it makes you also think about what is happening with our nature. The glacier is smelting down by the second and the measurements and dates are indicating it very accurately by the year.
Go and visit it, before it is too late!

This receding glacier is proof of global warming. By posting signs along the easy accesable walking trail, it becomes evident how quickly the effects of global warming are impacting this impressive ice giant.
The walk is not difficult, however some experience is required. I have visited the glacier in summer, fall and winter and I wouldn't be able to choose.
