The Staller Saddle Pass (Staller Sattel, Passo Stalle) can be found on the Austrian-Italy border in the High Tauern range of the Central Eastern Alps and is positioned at an impressive altitude of 2,052 m (6,732 ft.) above sea level. Weather conditions fluctuate from abundant sunshine to severe snow storm - so those traveling this pass should be prepared for a bit of changeability and plan accordingly. Approaching from the Austrian side is a powerful vertical ride, but it doesn’t become steep until a few kilometers after the village of Erlsbach. The Italian side hosts an extremely tapered road that can be dangerous when driving - so it’s important to exercise caution on this route. There is a traffic light that operates for 45 minutes per hour until road closure and the pass is only accessible from May to October from 5:30 am to 10:15 pm. Trailers and caravans are forbidden to travel on this pass.
