    Très belle étape, comme décrit, avec à la descente, après le col un superbe champ de fleurs naturelles. Un régal pour les yeux. Avons logé à l'hôtel Chavalatsch : 52 € avec petit déj.

    The hotel Chavalatsch is not recommended, I booked by telephone, but at night I received a mail telling me that they increased the price by 25%. So I found Haus Abart 0039 0473 832195, (coords 46.6426, 10.4612). Haus Abart has cheap rooms with shared bathroom and kitchen. €35. There is a pizzeria 10 mins up the road near the Swiss border.

    Se ravitailler de préférence à Tubre : il n'y a pas grand-chose à Stelvio.

    A TAUFERS, j'ai eu beaucoup de difficultés a trouver un hébergement ...Plus aucune disponibilité dans les hotels et les B and B !
    Grace à la gentillesse de la propriétaire de l'hotel et de son fils, j'ai pu dormir sur un lit de camp dans la buanderie entre les piles de draps et les serviettes .
