  • Very small, but so lovely. The lake is on the mountain, you can go up with a cabin and walk a bit, you will be in the nature, in a very interesting mountain, to see the valleys of Biellese. Not far...

  • Fantastic lake source from where the Cervo river flows through the provinces of Biella and Vercelli, a quiet place reachable via the E50 path that starts from Piedicavallo
  • Excellent place, in summer it is nice to get there and take a plunge, the water is fine but very cool. The landscape is beautiful and it is one of the largest lakes in the area.
  • For me one of the places of the heart in the mountains of home. The climb is gentle, except for a couple of steeper sections. Done a few days ago with my son who is 4 years old and has excellent motor skills in just over two hours. A well-run refuge a few steps from the lake offers excellent dishes and snacks. Not to be missed. I noticed more handkerchiefs and toilet paper along the path than I have in the past. There is nothing wrong with relieving yourself in the mountains, just do it with intelligence, moving away from the path, digging a small hole or covering with stones and ALWAYS carrying paper and / or towels with you. The same goes of course for meal waste. Bring everything home and differentiate, your children will be grateful to you. I forgot: although the season was extremely dry, along the route there are at least three springs from which you can draw very fresh water
  • Very tiring experience but at the end of the journey, looking back, it seems impossible to have managed to make such a steep path. Not recommended for vertigo sufferers! The view from the lake and from the trail in general is however beautiful, a true paradise in the middle of the mountains. Nearby there is a nice refuge where you can rest and eat a piece of homemade cake before going down the mountains.
  • A little over 2 and a half hours walk along a path that starts from Piedicavallo and offers a breathtaking view. You arrive at the lake after stopping at the refuge to catch your breath and have a snack. The small lake, to be alpine, not so much, but splendid. The more daring can refresh their feet in its icy waters. An exciting walk not to be missed.
