The excursion leads through pastures and huts to the southern peak of Cornacci or Cornon, dominated by the large cross visible also from the valley floor. A long ridge descends towards Tesero offering a panorama that literally takes your breath away. A silent pause on the bench at the foot of the cross will fill your eyes and heart with bliss. The beautiful panoramic photo on a steel platform provides information on the surrounding mountains with their near and far peaks. For over three centuries the slopes of Cornon have kept the unmistakable "writings of the shepherds" written in red ocher, locally called "ból". The whole area is home to a rich variety of flora and fauna. It is possible to meet chamois and spot the golden eagle in the sky.

Author’s recommendation

Stop to observe the works of land art at "RespirArt", the highest art park in the world. Almost all the works are built with materials from nature, therefore subject to a slow deterioration due to atmospheric agents.
