To the east, the water flows into the Inn and via the Danube into the Black Sea. To the north-west, the water flows into the Julia and then the Rhine, which eventually reaches the North Sea. The water in the Mera flows south-west into Lake Como and via the Po into the Mediterranean. The pass is surrounded by a towering mountain landscape of rubble and boulders. By contrast, the climb up to the Lunginsee is through alpine meadows and across pretty streams.
