Hike from Mt Paion del Cermis to the Bombasèl Lakes

The easy walking tour takes to the clear mountain lakes above Cavalese in the Lagorai region, with panoramic view on the Dolomites

At Cavalese we take the funicular up to the Doss dei Laresi where we board the cable car and then the chairlift up to the peak of the Paion del Cermis (2,200 m asl.). Here at the top our tour starts. We follow the marker SAT 353 (also L 03) past the viewpoint “Panoramio Lagorai 360” and further to the Forcella del Bombasel(ridge). Here our walk downhill starts, first over steps and then on the path which leads us straight to the mountain lakes (Laghi di Bombasel). This hike took us about 40 minutes.

At the alpine meadows of Bombasel nestled in the Lagorai group the big lake of Bombasel is located and other smaller pools and puddles. The ideal place to relax and to have a picnic. Those who want to walk up higher can climb up the Cima Lagorai or hike down to the lake of the Lagorai. But for such an extended tour you have to allow for extra time of several hours. For us it's enough for today, we enjoy the panoramic view and relax in nature before we come back on the same route again and take the funicular down to the Val di Fiemme.
