Pleasant walk without difficulty, at an altitude of 2000 meters. You walk towards the horizon, dominated by the two opposite peaks that frame the Oclini Pass: Corno Bianco, with a clear dolomitic rock, and Corno Nero, with a dark volcanic rock. The dirt road slopes gently towards Baita Isi, passing through the Gurndin Malga: small chests of good South Tyrolean food, surrounded by pastures embellished in summer by numerous flowers, cows, goats and pigs in freedom.
The last part of the tour that lead back to the starting point are moderately uphill, along a meadow that is a ski slope in winter, with a few more stones than the first comfortable stretch.
A short detour before Malga Gurndin along the path "H" allows you to reach a panoramic point where a sign announces that you are near the Bletterbach, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, a deep gorge carved into the rock, famous for its geological richness and fossils.
