This hiking classic takes you from the pass village to the Bergell Lägh da Cavloc, a magnificent mountain lake at the mouth of the Forno and Muretto valleys. Lined by fir trees on the north and west shores, the lake is easily accessible to swimmers on its south shore thanks to a small beach.
The short (about 5 km) but moderately difficult hike leads from the parking lot at the Orden dam along a wide path steadily uphill. Once at the top, hikers are not only rewarded with an enchanting mountain lake idyll, but also spoilt with culinary delights in a small mountain restaurant directly on the shore. Those who prefer to take care of their own physical well-being can use the beautiful barbecue sites.
