  • Tiring ascent and even some descents doing the ring, I'm not very trained and it took 3 hours with several stops to arrive but already going up you open up beautiful views and final icing the Lake of the Sabbioni! It's kind of looking back though the glacier.
  • Lake Sabbione is an artificial basin located at 2521 m asl. The construction of the dam was completed in 1953 by the then Edison to block the natural basin and collect the waters of the Arbola glacier (in the photo). It is possible to reach the lake starting from the parking lot under the Morasco dam. The excursion lasts about a couple of hours. Recommended period: from June to October
