MOUNTAIN LAKES

Almost 100 Alpine lakes

MIRRORS FOR THE MOUNTAINS

Lakes in Val di Sole

Did you know that there are almost 100 Alpine lakes in Val di Sole? Some solitary, others grouped together, almost all looking like drops of water glistening among the mountains. The valley has an unusually rich amount of water, breaking all records in Trentino with its 297 lakes. It offers an incredibly rich variety of hikes and mountain trails with hugely diverse scenery and mountains ranging from 700 m in the valley bottom to the highest summits at 3700 m. There are three main mountain ranges in the valley: Ortles-Cevedale to the north, Adamello-Presanella to the west, the Brenta Dolomites to the southwest and Maddalene to the east.

They are mainly small lakes framed by meadows and snowy peaks, which owe their origins to the glaciers higher up. This perennial snow is precisely what ensures an important source of water, fundamental for life in general and preservation of these spectacular surroundings in particular. The greatest concentration of these Alpine lakes is to be found in the Ortles-Cevedale mountain range, between the valleys of Peio and Rabbi, set in enthralling, unique scenery.

There are lots of different excursions and walks that take you up there.
Here are the absolute must-tries!
