Lagorai chain, the Dolomites alter ego
The Lagorai mountain chain runs for more than 70 km and a long section overlooks Val di Fiemme, its peaks contrasting with the blue sky.
The wild and unpolluted Lagorai chain is like the Dolomites alter ego. If the dolomite calcareous rocks don’t hold water at all, but they enchant with their reddish reflections, on the contrary the porphyritic Lagorai rocks are precious treasure chests of emerald green water.
Some lakes are encircled by rhododendrons, other by meadows and other are nestled in the rocks.
On the Lagorai, where eagles dare to fly, you could walk for days without meeting a single human being. It is one of the few alpine territories left untouched. In Val di Fiemme, there are 14 lakes on the Lagorai chain: some of them can be easily reached, while others require some good training.
Here they are: Buse Lake, Montalon Lake, Stellune Lake, Buse Basse Lakes, Forame Lake, Lagorai small Lakes, Bombasèl Lakes (reachable by the gondolas of Alpe Cermis and then an easy walk), Lagorai Lake, Aie small Lakes, Brutto Lake, Trote Lake, Moregna Lake, Caserina Lake and Cece Lake (reachable on a path accessible to disabled people too).
Close to Val di Fiemme, in the park of Paneveggio, the small Colbricon lakes are worth a walk too.
