Stilfserjoch south ramp

Half way up from Bormio not yet on the plateau. We look to the north to the steep valley with all those serpentines on the southern side of the Stilfser Joch.

We are now nearly on the plateau on the south ramp and view back down into the valley - let’s say to the place where we have taken the previous picture.

Stilfserjoch plateai on the northern side

We have reached the plateau at an altitude of 2.300m. From here you can’t see yet the Stelvio summit. We look towards north. The former hostels along the road are mostly derelicted and uninhabited.

view towards the summit

We are still on the plateau but now you can spot the summit of the Stelvio pass. we still have to go 1.000ft in altitude. Here we look north up to the pass summit.
