The pass height is at 2044 m above sea level.M in the municipality of Tujetsch. Immediately west of the pass is the slightly dammed Oberalpsee. 

The Oberalp pass traffic leading through the Tujetsch was never very significant. The current road over the Oberalp Pass was built in the years 1862-1863. In 1911, the construction of the Furka-Oberalp Railway began, which was interrupted by the war, so that train services did not start until 1926.

The main road, which crosses the pass height, is closed in winter, but a limited number of vehicles can be transported between Andermatt and Sedrun by car loading during this time. The opening hours of the pass vary depending on the snow situation from mid-April to the maximum beginning of December

Since October 2010, there has been a red lighthouse on the pass, a reduced replica of the 14-metre-high tower that stood at the mouth of Hoek van Holland for 70 years.
