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.

Landschaftlich einer der schönsten Wege die ich in den Dolomiten gewandert bin, leider in den Sommerferien, waren sehr viele auf der gleichen Strecke unterwegs. Die Landschaft wechselt auf der Tour ständig und man hat fantastische Ausblicke. Von der Puez Hütte war ich ein wenig enttäuscht, hat wenig alpinen Charme.
