Stelvio Pass – An aerial action video of the monumental automotive location

The Stelvio Pass is a mountain pass in northern Italy, at an elevation of 2,757 m (9,045 ft) above sea level. It is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, 13 m (43 ft) below France’s Col de l’Iseran (2,770 m (9,088 ft)).

The pass is located in the Ortler Alps in Italy between Stilfs (“Stelvio” in Italian) in South Tyrol and Bormio in the province of Sondrio.

It is about 75 km (47 mi) from Bolzano and a mere 200 m from the Swiss border. The Umbrail Pass runs northwards from the Stelvio’s western ramp, and the “Three Languages Peak” (Dreisprachenspitze) above the pass is so named because this is where the ItalianGerman, and Romansh languages meet.

It is also a great meeting place for motoring enthusiasts. The almost vertical cliff, the endless repetition of turns on a narrow road and the vast gap between the two, prove to be a tough testing ground for nerves, reflexes, suspensions and power units.

The natural Alpine beauty is as unique as the sense of achievement, having dealt with the uphill maze in an expedient manner. All is captured in this breathtaking video by DJI.
