"Lago Misurina Exceptional Dolomite Area" Lago di Misurina by painterdave
Lago di Misurina Travel Guide: 26 reviews and 44 photos
Coming from living in Colorado I didn't expect to see such beauty and difference in mountains. While not as high in alititude, it "feels" like 10,000 feet and "looks" like 10,000 feet and the trees are just as tall, the lake is quiet and beautiful. However, the tops of the peaks in this area are craggy and rugged and majestic as Maroon Bells near Aspen. If you are ever in the Veneto Region and have a few days to venture into the mountains I recommend this lake area.
We also visited Cortina which is just over the pass, but it is way far more crowded and less tranquil. See my page on a hotel that I recommend and also a restaurant on the way down from Cortina in Vodo de Codore which is affordable and a local hangout for great food.
Show here is the view from the hotel I recommend. Not only is the view totally surrounded by these high peaks of rock, but they offer a reasonable price on food with the room that is difficult to pass up.
This small lake, Lago Misurina, is totally surrounded by these craggy peaks, and glacial valleys. There is also a toll road above the lake, which costs 20 euros. We did not travel on this road, but it goes to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo which is a famous peak.
- Pros:Try to find a good weather day with no rain
- Cons:snow depth in winter was 6 meters at one time
- In a nutshell:Fewer tourist than Cortina and more scenery to view
