Path of the Lakes

A circular trail leads beneath the rock faces of the Gardenaccia High Plateau to the two lakes Lech Dlá Lunch and Lech da Sompunt.

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.
