At the moment, autumn (US=fall) the water level is very low and the lake is not very impressive. Maybe in the spring ... The walk round it is quite hard work for what you get. If you hae the choice go to Lago di Ledro...More

A small lake with cool and crystal clear water, very invigorating 💪. It worth a stop by for an hour or two just to recharge your battery after some tough track.

The water were clear and just a little cold, but in a hot day it was perfect for swimming. Together with Riva del Garda and the waterfall in between it was a perfect day.

Se non hai freddo penso che a metà Novembre la natura sia bellissima, perché è il periodo chiamato estate di San Martino. Non so se ci sono mezzi pubblici di trasporto. Meglio contattare l'ufficio di turismo. Buona visita!
