Extremely panoramic hiking loop, which allows you to admire the Lagorai chain, the lower Val di Fiemme and to see the Val di Cembra in the distance. We are in Passo Oclini, where the road stops and you can only aim upwards towards the sky. The itinerary proposes the ascent of both peaks that frame the pass, but it is possible to go up just on one of them.
The names of the two peaks say a lot about their composition: the Corno Nero is made of porphyry and dark rocks of volcanic origin, while the Corno Bianco stands out with its white dolomite. For this reason the two peaks are so different.
