Following the usual track marks with brown directional arrows and the name “Stockalperweg” (track mark 90), from the Sempione Mountain Pass we start going downwards always keeping at the bottom of the valley and always more or less at an offset to the cantonal road. We pass the whereabouts of Hiwe, with its Baron Stockalper Hospice, and thus follow on to Nideralp, Chiusmatte, and Engiloch. On the nice mule track which unwinds on the side of the main road we cross the pastures of Maschihus and arrive at Egga and thus to Siplon Dorf. From here onwards the path goes down to Gabi and in correspondence of the Alte Kaserme (historical transportation museum along Sempione) we start an emotional journey with metal overpasses and high bridges which cross the Gondo Gulleys. We cross the military fort of Gondo and at last reach Gondo, at the Italian-Swiss boundary.
