The hike leads from the Passo Costalunga first into the Latemar forest, where the hazel tree grows, which is used especially for the production of string instruments. For this reason, the wood has also been called ‘tonewood’. From the Latemar forest you reach the Lake Carezza, which is considered one of the most magnificent Alpine lakes and is known above all for its deep green water and the beautiful mountain scenery in the background.
