The beautiful walk just a little steep in some sections, the color of the water, the trees with the red and yellow of autumn that are mirrored ,,,a wonderful day!
Il lago e' meraviglioso ma la magia del posto e' rovinata dalla troppa gente che c' e'...

The parking lot then near the lake is a disaster. I walked up and got intoxicated by the endless row of cars standing in line ... in an enchanted place like Lake Braies you should not go by car ... the municipality should close the road and make a parking downstream. do you want to see the lake?? You walk and so you taste 100% the atmosphere of the place.
