Description

Italian mountain soldiers occupied Monte Scorluzzo (3094) in May 1915. Already in July, this excellent viewing platform was snatched away from them by Austrian Standschützen. Along the mountain hiking trail from the Stelvio Pass to the summit, we move between numerous and still well-intact systems of positions in their footsteps. The descent to the Filone del Mot is a bit exposed, but very easy to walk on and often a curious herd of ibex blocks the further path. Descriptive picture and text boards convey detailed and background information along the entire route, for which 5-7 hours of walking time (without breaks) are to be expected.

Hints

  • The official hiking trail leads to the pass road and there is no other way to get back to the post bus stop at the Umbrail Pass or on the Stelvio Pass than along the road.
  • The tour can also be started on the Umbrail Pass, where you will then have to climb up the Stelvio/Stelvio Pass.
  • The best way to enjoy this hike is with a hiking guide, who 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
