Italian mountain soldiers occupied Monte Scorluzzo (3094) in May 1915. Already in July, this excellent viewing pulpit was snatched from them by Austrian stand shooters. Along the mountain hiking trail from the Stelvio to the summit, we move between numerous and still well intact position systems on their tracks. The descent to the Filone del Mot is somewhat exposed, but very easy to walk and often a curious pack of wild animals blocks the way. Visual picture and text panels provide detailed and background information along the entire route for which 5-7 hours of walking time (without breaks) are to be expected.


  • The official hiking trail leads to the pass road and there is no other way to get back to the Postauto stop at the Umbrail Pass or on the Stilfserjoch than along the road.
  • The tour can also be started on the Umbrail Pass, where you have to climb the Stelvio/Stilfserjoch.
  • Best you can enjoy this hike with a hiking guide, which can also provide you with a lot of background information about the history. Tel. Information about the guest information Engadin Val Müstair, +41 81 861 88 40


From Filone del Mot to Lago Alto there is sometimes no path and no marking (Italian soil). In case of poor visibility, a very good orientation ability is necessary.
