The Piz Cavalaccio/Chavalatsch (2.763m), a beautifully situated mountain of the Fallatsch ridge, between the Passo dello Stelvio and the Val Müstair, offers one of the most beautiful summit views of the Vinschgau Valley. Next to the summit cross is a former Italian customs hut, which now serves as a relay station for radio amateurs in the Vinschgau Valley. This rewarding mountain hike has no difficulties worth mentioning. The paths are very gentle and there are no exposed or difficult parts. Since the described ascent is via the sun-exposed side, an ascent at the warmest time of day may be avoided.
