Hiking around Lago di Misurina Lake

Driving along the road 48 from Toblach to Cortina d'Ampezzo halfway you will come to Misurina, the pearl of the Dolomites, with the homonymous lake, who mirrors the surrounding Dolomites mountains. The Misurina Lake is among the most beautiful Lakes in the Dolomites and at the same time the biggest natural lake in the Cadore region.

Misurina is a climatic spa. The air is fresh and healthy, the air pressure is low and the air-humidity, too. It is the perfect climate for asthma patients.

Around the Lago di Misurina Lake there are giant mountains and lovely mountain pastures: a perfect territory for comfortable walks and demanding hikes. To the east of the lake there is the "Bonacossa Trail" which leads hikers through the magic mountains of Sexten and Cadini. To the north, however, you can hike in direction Three Peaks, the most famous mountains in the whole Dolomites.

A very rewarding excursion starting at the Lago di Misurina Lake is the one to the "Forcella del Diavolo", passing the "Pian degli Spiriti" and the "Rifugio Fondo Savio", where you can take a break enjoying the typical cuisine of this alpine region. The excursion is 3 and a half hours long and shows the most beautiful sights of the Cadini mountain group.
