Lakes hike to the Commezzadura Alps

On this hike we discover six mountain lakes in the area of the mountain pastures of Commezzadura.

We start at the train station of Daolasa near Commezzadura and take the modern cable-car which brings us to the top of the 2,100 m high Mount Vigo. We pass hut Solander and hut Orso-Bruno, take the marker no. 201 into the direction of “Lago delle Malghette” and reach the path no. 267 which turns to “Lago Alto”. The trail leads up through a bit rough terrain, on a knoll there is the beautiful mountain lake at 2,170 m a.s.l. For us the path leads further on uphill to the “Tre Laghi”. The three mountain lakes are placed in a small valley directly below the 2.700 m high mountain tops and glimmer light and dark blue. An amazing moment! After a rest we follow the marker “Lago Scuro”, now we walk downhill to reach it.

The condition of the path needs our full attention. At first sight it looks easy, but we have to take care about sharp stones which are placed under the grass on the path and cannot be seen. It’s easy to slip! Step for step we walk downhill, pass Lago Scuro and carry on until the wide area covered with moss, which ends at the huts of Lago delle Malghette. This bigger lake is placed at 1,900 m and the last lake we find on our mountain hike. From this point we walk another 45 minutes uphill back to Mount Vigo, where we take the cable-car down into the valley again.

A very beautiful mountain hike through ambitious terrain with adorable impressions of nature and amazing views on the Brenta-Dolomites.
