Orrido di Bellano, Bellano

3.8
#1 of 6 in Nature in Lake Como
Take in the sweet smell of fresh air and the calm of rushing water at Orrido di Bellano, a waterfall and gorge. This natural attraction is the result of water erosion that took place over 15 million years ago. Explore the gorge and waterfall via thin wooden platforms which lead to a lookout point with a spectacular view of the sparkling lake below. The narrow path travels through the rocky crevasses lined with ferns and shrubbery, and the fall's powerful force provides an awe-inspiring retreat in a very scenic spot.

  • Attractions in Bellano. After some stone stairs, it goes right to the kiosk for the tickets. 4.-€ per person. A beautiful clam so close to the town, no one suspected. Secure path is purely.

  • And very small though ... is a jewel. Waterfalls are spectacular. The steps for the public are well protected, the environment is so fresh, a beautiful experience.

  • Interesting thing to see. It's only a quick visit, but it was worth (few € entrance). Quite ugly in some parts (the initial part, with a massive pipe!?), but then fascinating and almost scary (in a good way) just a few meters down the path.
  • Great pictures, beautiful history. Very short and wasn't very crowded when we went
  • The water sculpted rock formations are so beautiful, dynamic and muscular. Not at all "horrible" as the name implies
  • I had read some other reviews and almost didn't go. People were complaining that it cost three euros and didn't feel they got their money's worth. I could not disagree more. This is something you have to see. It is definitely worth more than three euros to see. I cannot put into words just how beautiful this canyon is. Take your time and really let it soak in. You will not regret having seen this place.
  • Directly in the heart of bellano you can access this amazing caves and waterfalls. The colors and the view are unbelievable. However it was a pity there was rubbish and plastic bags left in the water at the bottom.
