The Stilfser Joch (Italian: Passo dello Stelvio; German: Stilfser Joch), located in Italy, at 2757 m (9045 ft.) is the highest paved mountain pass in the Eastern Alps, and the second highest in the Alps, slightly below the Col de l'Iseran (2770 m, 9088 ft.). In the list of highest paved roads in the Alps, Stilfser Joch ranks fourth.
The Stilfser Joch is located in the Italian Alps north of Bormio in the province of Sondrio and south of Stilfs in the province of Bolzano-Bozen, some 75 km (47 mi.) from Bolzano, close to the Swiss border, as the Umbrail Pass joins the Stilfser Joch's southern ramp nearby. The \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Three languages peak\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" (Dreisprachenspitze) above the pass is so named because this is where the Italian, German and Romansh languages meet.
The road connects the Valtellina with the upper Adige valley (Vinschgau) and Merano. The most important mountain range next to the Stilfser Joch is the Ortler Alps. Adjacent to the pass road there is a large summer skiing area. Important mountains nearby include Ortler, Monte Livrio, Monte Scorluzzo and Monte Zebrý.
