Short, panoramic walk around the Karer See lake in the Eggental valley with wonderful views of the colourful lake and the Rosengarten and Latemar groups.

The Karer See (Italian: Lago di Carezza) is a small mountain lake below the Latemar massif in Val d'Ega. In early summer, the basin is fed by meltwater via underground tributaries. The deep, blue-green colour of the ice-cold, clear water is particularly impressive, which is why the lake is a popular photo motif. To get to the Karer Valley in early summer, the lake is fed by meltwater from underground tributaries. There are many legends surrounding Lake Karer. Supposedly, a water mermaid once lived there. One day a sorcerer heard her singing and fell madly in love with her. He stretched a rainbow from the rose garden to the Latemar – directly über the lake – to lure and catch the girl. But the suspicious mermaid noticed the sorcerer hiding on the shore and disappeared into the depths for all time. The sorcerer was so angry that he tore the rainbow into a million pieces and threw them into the lake. And so – if you believe the legend – Lago di Carezza got its beautiful colour.

“They take pictures of the mountain climbers at the top of the mountain. They don’t take pictures along the way cause who wants to remember the relentless climb, the pain and anguish of taking it to the next level – nobody takes pictures of that, nobody wants to remember. We just want to remember the view from the top, the breathtaking moment at the edge of the world. That’s what keeps us climbing and it’s worth the pain, that’s the crazy part. It’s worth anything.“ – Anonymous
