Emerald water shimmering in a dark lake carved out of the rock, the Monte del Lago, at 2,810 m above sea level, watches over the most fascinating lake of the Eastern Dolomites.
Situated at 1,494 m above sea level, Lake Braies is an alpine heaven which extends over an area of 31 hectares and offers spectacular views. This is an attractive destination for cyclists, hikers and mountain walkers, as well as the starting point for many outdoor activities. The lake was formed by a natural dam caused by a landslide.
