The Stelvio Pass, Italy

April 12th, 2007 / / Links: Google Earth, Google Maps, Yahoo! Maps, Virtual Earth / Nearest places
 

The Stelvio Pass (Italian: Passo dello Stelvio; German: Stilfser Joch), located in Italy, is at 2757 m the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, after the Col de l’Iseran (2770 m). In the list of highest paved roads in the Alps, it ranks 4th.

It is located in the Italian Alps near Bormio in the South and Sulden (Solda), some 75 km from Bolzano (Bozen), near the Swiss border, as the Umbrail Pass joins the Stelvio's southern ramp nearby. The "Three languages peak" (Dreisprachenspitze) above the pass is named that way, as here the areas where the Italian, German and Romansh languages meet.

The road connects the Valtellina with the upper Adige (Etsch) valley (Vinschgau (Val Venosta)) and Merano (Meran). The most important mountain next to the Stelvio Pass is the Ortler Alps. Straight beside the pass road there is a large summer skiing area. Important mountains nearby include Monte Livrio, Monte Scorluzzo and Ortler.

Col du Tourmalet is one of the most famous of the mountain climbs on the Tour de France bicycle race. The Tourmalet has been included more often than any other mountain pass, starting in 1910, when the Pyrenees were introduced in the race.

The ski station La Mongie is located on the eastern side of Col du Tourmalet, and the village of Luz-Saint-Sauveur is at the bottom of the western side.

Tourmalet is also the name of a cheese made from sheep's milk produced in these mountains.
