Panoramic round tour from Varena via Il Palon on the Schwarzhorn

This tour is a technically easy but nevertheless long and therefore demanding round to the lonely peaks on the southern edge of the Dolomites. The varied paths run through sparse forests, mountain pine fields and over meadows covered with gentians.
