It connects Valcamonica and Val di Sole. It is delimited by the Ortler Alps to the north and the Adamello range to the south.

The pass has hotels and shops for tourists in winter, as the land around the pass is used for winter sports - mainly skiing (see Adamello Ski Raid) and snowboarding.

On top of the pass exists a World War I memorial for the fallen Italian soldiers, erected by the fascist regime.
