The “Tru di lec”, the Path of the Lakes, is an easy hiking path offering amazing views on the mighty Mt. Sasso di Santa Croce (2,907 m a.s.l.) and the 3,055 m high Mt. Piz Lavarela. It snakes its way beneath the rock faces of the Gardenaccia Highland through the beautiful natural landscape of Alta Badia.
The theme path starts in Pedraces, a village belonging to the municipality of Badia, and leads in a 3-hour walk first to Lake Lunch (Lech Dlá Lunch) and then - through a forest - to Lake Sompunt (Lech da Sompunt). The latter, a dark green lake at 1,460 m a.s.l. with a restaurant on its shore, is a well-known destination in summer and winter alike.
Finally the trail takes you back to Pedraces via the hamlets Paracia and Ciaminades - the highest point of the Path of the Lakes is located at 1,671 m a.s.l.
