Analytical text:

Mount Cavalbianco has a typical glacial cirque morphology. From the high altitude grasslands of the mountain you can enjoy a wide panoramic view of the territory included in the Parco del Gigante, The Pietra di Bismantova and the surrounding hilly areas, while on crystal clear days you can see the first pre-alpine mountain chains. Towards the south you can see the Apuane Alps. Here snow, as in all major altitude areas, persists till late summer; this is one of the reasons why only small alpine type plants can thrive
