Myths & legends of the Dolomites: Adventurous torch-hike to the disappeared lake
Not far from the Lago di Carezza is supposedly a meadow that, according to season, fills with water. Legend has it that a local farmer's wife would collect leaves for her cows and was overwhelmed by the water at this place. Who can find the vanished lake? We go in search of this special place with torches, also learning much about the special lakes of the region and the legends that surround them. | Length: 2.8 km | Difference in altitude: 72 metres descent | 60 metres ascent | When: Thursdays from 08:00 pm to 10:30 pm | Meeting place: bus stop by Lago di Carezza Visitor Centre | Price: €7.00 for adults, €5.00 for children | IMPORTANT: 1 flashlight per family | The children's programme is for children aged 6-12.
