The hike to Corno di Fana/Pfannhorn is particularly recommendable because of the mountain panorama. As the mountain is already in the main Alpine crest you have a breathtaking view of all the famous Dolomite peaks, the Ortler group and the Ötztaler Alps. On the summit there is a panorama map on which all the mountains are signed.

From Gandelle the track passes at the chapel of Gandelle, the Bergrast guesthouse and the Hoferhof farm until the forest. Then the path no. 25 goes along a small service road - initially asphalted but soon becoming unsurfaced - into the Golfental valley. Further on the well-marked trail takes in wide bends through the forestup to the forest border and finally across wide grassy slopes up to the Rif. Bonner/Bonner Hütte hut. From there uphill along the grassy ridge of the mountain till the summit.
Descent: To turn the hike into a circular tour, you can take the following route: From the summit over the northwest ridge on a marked path down to the "Bocchetta di Fana/Pfanntörl".From there on path no. 25A takes over grassy slopes down to the Bergalm hut (closed), then on the forest path through mountain meadows and forest down to the junction with the ascent path and back to Gandelle/Kandellen. This route is only slightly longer than the direct descent.
