Turn-by-turn directions

Starting from the “Vallatsches Hof” farm, follow a small path up to the meadow trail. This leads you left and into the broad valley as far as the Untere Stilfser Alm Alpine farm. After you head left past the farm, you will soon find yourself beneath a large, broad slope. Cross this slope via the ridge, which features a subtle profile, and make your way up to a section of level terrain. Continue on through a hollow, then bear diagonally right into the small cirque. Head up to the left until you are below the right-hand ridge, which merges into a small, flat hollow. Go south through this hollow until you reach the end, after which the highest point of the tour – the Piz Sielva at 2,787 m – will be slightly to your left.
