Dolomiti Orientali - Corno Bianco
One of the peaks surrounding Oclini Pass, Corno Bianco is named after the colour of its Dolomite rocks.
ATTENTION: The opening of cultural and tourist sites, access to them, to public transport and to the services described in these pages is governed by the containment measures put in place by the government authorities and the Autonomous Province of Trento to deal with the COVID-19 health emergency. The rules may vary over time and provide for the application of different security measures — from closure, to social distancing, to the mandatory use of personal protective equipment such as gloves and masks. We therefore ask you to consult the section Travelling safely on this website and to contact the managers directly for updated information on how to gain access.
The climb to the peak is breathtaking and features a comfortable path, which travels through a thick forest of mountain pines and rhododendrons. Corno Bianco is also very interesting from a geological point of view. The chasm of Butterloch Canyon - namely "the butter hole" - was shaped by the River Bletterbach, and is located to the northwest of Corno Bianco. The river bed can also be travelled, albeit recurring to some iron stairs and cords, starting from Redagno. Dinosaurs' footprints were discovered in the canyon. The Oclini Pass area and its peat bog have been classified as biotopes. Visitors can admire a wide variety of plants and animals here. The area boasts more than 34 different birds and 200 plant species.
