    Im Hause Chavalatsch gibt es keine Zimmervermietung mehr. Es gibt 3 Hotels, wir wohnten im Hotel Stilfserhof ( Halbpension 65 € ) und waren sehr zufrieden, köstliches und reichliches Essen
  • wandervogel - 2016-04-19
    Super Alternative um nicht nach Stilfs absteigen zu müssen:
    Die obere Stilfser Alpe (2077m), 16 Betten, sehr gutes Essen!
    Von der Rifair-Scharte aufwärts über Piz Chavalatsch (2764m, sehr gute Aussicht auf Ortler), oder abwärts (Weg14), dann über Almweg 4,11

    Very welcome to the Haus Chavalatsch in Stelvio (€ 24 with breakfast)!

    La variante par le Pic Chavalatsch est à conseiller . Du col suivre le sentier 14 (ou 14a) ; au pic une cabane peut servir d'abri temporaire , de la descendre par le large sentier 5 à Stilfersalm . Excellents accueil et repas

    The variant Pic Chavalatsch is recommended. Cervical follow the path 14 (or 14) to peak a cabin can be used as a temporary shelter, the wide path down the 5 Stilfersalm. Excellent reception and dinner

    Depuis TAUFERS l'itinéraire vers RIFAIR ALM puis le Col de RIFAIRSCHARTE est assez bien balisé . Tout se complique à partir du col car le balisage est multiple et part dans toutes les directions !
    Ne trouvant pas l'itinéraire de descente sur STILFS et toujours sans carte.., j'ai poursuivi en suivant une crète jusqu'a proximité du PIZ CHAVALATSCH / 2764 m ! Puis cherchant un itinéraire de descente sur la vallée je rejoins la crète du MUNWARTER avant de descendre sur la droite dans un vallon pour m'arreter au refuge STILFERSERALM / 2150 m / Tel 00 39 (0)473 611 744 situé au dessus de STILFS .
    Sympathique accueil , hebergement et nourriture de qualité !
    Le lendemain matin, par un bon sentier d'alpage à flanc de vallée, je rejoins l'itinéraire R70 au refuge FURKELHUTTE pour prendre la direction de STILFSERJOCH / 2 757m.
    Cet itinéraire est une bonne variante qui évite un Aller-Retour dans la vallée avec opportunité d'une nuit en refuge !
    Carte détaillée bienvenue...

    Since the route to Taufers RIFAIR ALM and the Col de RIFAIRSCHARTE is fairly well marked. Everything is complicated from the neck because the markup is multiple and share in all directions! Not finding the route and descent always without Stilfs map .. I continued along a ridge until near Piz Chavalatsch / 2764 m! Then seeking a route down the valley I joined the crest of MUNWARTER before descending into a valley right to stop me at the shelter STILFERSERALM / 2150 m / Tel 00 39 (0) 473 611 744 located above Stilfs. Friendly reception, accommodation and food quality! The next morning, a good trail to alpine valley side, I agree to the R70 route to take refuge FURKELHUTTE direction Stilfserjoch / 2 757m. This route is a good alternative which avoids Return opportunity in the valley with a night in a shelter! Detailed map welcome ...

    Le descriptif de l'itinéraire résumé est utilisable jusqu'à Rifair Alm. Ensuite il est lacunaire, incomplet et induit en erreur. Ne partez pas sans une carte (très) détaillée ! L'estimation du temps de parcours est un peu juste.
    Automatic translation [Google]
    The description of the route summary is used up Rifair Alm. Then it is flawed, incomplete and misleading. Do not leave without a map (very) detailed! The estimated travel time is a bit tight.

    In this stage description you have marked the Plaschweller Kamm incorrectly. It should be placed at the ridge where the Rifair Schart is. Also in the altigramm there is a peak of over 2500, but when following the track it doesn't go higher that the Rifair Scharte at 2455. The distance between Rifair Alm and Plaschweller Kamm can't be 3,5km. That pretty plain to see when you compare it with the distanse from Puntweil to Rifair Alm. the correct distance is about 1km and takes maybe 30 minutes. The overall stage ascent and descent is also marked wrong cause it's like 1400m up from Puntweil to the pass and about as much down to Stelvio.
    Feel free to delete this comment if you have coreected the things I pointed out.
