Piz Zupò, standing at 3,996 meters, is a significant peak in the Bernina Range of the Alps, straddling the border between Switzerland and Italy. This mountain, nestled between the Morteratsch Valley in Graubünden, Switzerland, and the Malenco Valley in Lombardy, Italy, holds the title of being the second highest peak in the Bernina Range, following Piz Bernina.

The inaugural ascent of Piz Zupò was achieved on July 9, 1863, by L. Enderlin and Serardi, accompanied by Badrutt, a renowned chamois hunter of that era. The peak, with its moderate elevation and relatively accessible routes, offers climbers a less strenuous yet rewarding alpine experience. The mountain’s name, translating to “Hidden Peak” in English, reflects its relatively obscured position amidst the grandeur of the Bernina Range.
