The Puez-Odle Nature Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is also known as "the witness to the geological history of the Dolomites". The natural park is particularly interesting from a geological and geomorphological point of view, with many typical rock formations and strata that are characteristic of the Dolomites.

The hike in the south-eastern part of the Puez-Odle Nature Park presents no great technical difficulties for hikers.
