Take the train to Preda and climb up to the crystal-clear Palpuogna lake. Past the shores of the lake, the trail continues to climb, first along the pass road, until it branches off to the right to the green-blue lakes of Crap Alv Lajets and on to Fuorcla Crap Alv. Enjoy the view into Val Bever and of the striking Piz Ot. The descent is steep down into Val Bever, where you reach the gravel road. A certain amount of surefootedness is required for the descent. The last section leads comfortably to Bever.
