Hike from the upper Val Venosta (Vinschgau) Valley, past the foot of Piz Lat Mountain, to the Cippo della Triplice Frontiera (Dreiländerstein) tri-border landmark, where the Austrian, Swiss and Italian borders meet.

You can park at Tendershof Farm near the village of Resia (Reschen Dorf). From there, follow an agricultural road leading uphill. After two bends, follow Trail No. 3, through a shady forest, up to the boundary path, which runs beneath the mighty peaks of Piz Lat Mountain and close to the national border. The way to the Cippo della Triplice Frontiera (Dreiländerstein), the tri-border landmark, where the borders of Italy, Austria and Switzerland meet, is well marked and signposted. From there you have a panoramic view of Inntal Valley, Engadine Valley and the Samnauner and Nauderer Mountains. Descent: Returning on the same trail you can enjoy the view over Lago di Resia (Reschensee) Lake and the Gruppo dell’ Ortles-Cevedale (Ortlergruppe) Mountains.
