Between the Val di Funes and the Val Gardena, there is the Odle Group, named after the Gran Odla.

This famous mountain massif of the Dolomites is located in the heart of the Puez-Odle Nature Park. The main peak is the Sass Rigais, which is 3,025 m high - like the neighbouring Furchetta. The Sass Rigais can be scaled both from the Val Gardena and the Val di Funes, via a fixed-rope route starting in Santa Maddalena (Val di Funes) or Santa Cristina (Val Gardena).
Other important peaks of the impressive Odle Group are the Sass da l’Ega (2,924 m asl), Sas de Mesdì (2,762 m asl), Campanile di Funes (2,834 m asl) and the Furchetta (3,025 m asl), Odla di Valdussa (2,936 m asl), Odla di Funes (2,800 m asl), Gran Fermada (2,873 m asl) and Piccola Fermeda (2,814 m asl).
The Odle Group is also perfect for hikes and alpine tours. In the southeast of this mountain range there is the Puez Group - these two mountain groups are eponymous for the Puez-Odle Nature Park.
