The special thing about Hornischeck/ Monte Arnese? You can stand with one foot in Italy and the other in Austria, because the Karnische Kamm/ Cresta Carnica forms the natural state border. The summit offers a unique view of the Sesto sundial and the peaks of the Three Peaks, as well as of the Austrian glacier world and the Comelico.

IMPORTANT: Before starting any ski tour/snowshoe excursion, you must check the weather conditions and danger avalanches report, asking also experts (alpine guides etc.).
WARNING: The GPX data may differ from reality.
