From the Stelvio Pass (2,757 m, parking, hotels, shops) a broad path takes you to the Rifugio Garibaldi, on the Dreisprachenspitze Peak (2,838 m, 20 minutes). Following the directions to the «Sella Piz Cotschen», continue on a broad, almost level ridge; turn left at the intersection on a marked route, which leads to the Sella Piz Cotschen (2,925 m). Turn left again, walking up the rocky path, taking care to avoid the crevice, to reach the summit (3,026 m; 1.5 hours). Return is via the same route. Alternative route: having returned to the «Sella Piz Cotschen», we walk down the next ridge towards the small Lake Goldsee; we take the high route to the west and return to the Rifugio Garibaldi and then the pass (1.5 hours).
Parking is available at the Stelvio Pass - Stilfser Joch
