Waterfalls, rivers and lakes

00-MdC Laghi Fiumi Cascate

The water is the main element of the Adamello Brenta Nature Park. The roar of the rivers, the blue stretch of water reflecting the surrounding woods, the rushing waterfalls characterize the landscape of the Adamello-Presanella group and the Brenta Dolomites.

48 are the lakes in the Nature Park; 44 are in the Adamello side, with its particular rock shape suitable for the lake formation. The other 4 are rare pearls enriching the Brenta Dolomites where the porous limestone formations make accumulated water disappear.

Almost all the lakes are from the ice age with the exception of the biggest lake in the park, Lago di Tovel, which formed after a landslide and was known for the reddish color of its waters.

The most famous lakes, reachable with excursions of different difficulties, are the lakes of Nambino, Ritorto (connected by the famous “5 lakes” path, which includes also the lakes of Serodoli, Nero and Lambin), Malghette, Cornisello, San Giuliano and Valagola.

If lakes are the best places for relaxation and peace, the force of water can be admired in the waterfalls of the side valleys of Val Rendena.

In Val Genova the Nardis, the Lares and the Matarot waterfalls are the most famous; in Vallesinella the Middle and High waterfalls were beloved by Sissi Princess in the past and have still now a unique charm, while the Amola waterfall burst into the woods of Val Nambrone
