Approach

Solda/Sulden and its valley are the hearth of the Northern Sector of Ortles/Ortler Group. One can arrive there by car in two ways: or coming from East through Merano and Prato allo Stelvio, or, in a surely more spectacular way, coming from West, through Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfser Joch 2757m and then descending to Trafoi in Val Venosta.
The winding road descending from Passo dello Stelvio/Stilfser Joch 2757m into Val Venosta and, in distance, the N-E sector of Ortles/Ortler group.
