Dolomiti Orientali - Corno Bianco

One of the peaks surrounding Oclini Pass, Corno Bianco is named after the colour of its Dolomite rocks.

Corno Bianco

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.
