fantastic place

Absolutely beautiful hike. It's quite easy but still surprsingly varied. Obviously, lots of people (we were there at 9am already, and almost all parking lots were taken). Be aware that when parking lots are full, there will be police who will not let you get anywhere close to the lake, and if we understood it correctly, entry is actually blocked from 10.30am-2pm. So definitely either go there in the morning or evening.

Did it 2 adults and 3 kids (10,11,16) started on the 23rd of July 2018. The hike was just perfect- good trail, great views, good weather, good food (most of it) . All the family had a great time.

Amazing views. Definitely a must see. You can get different views all the time during the hike. At the end you can catch the bus so no need to go back on the trail.

A splendid little hike. Very easy, Suitable for all ages and skill levels. There were a couple place that appeared to be trail closures, but it didn't appear to be serious and everybody was moving through unimpeded. Make sure to try your hand at skipping rocks from the rocky beaches, my record was 5!

Walked around the lake in early June. Beautiful and easy hike. You could see the reflection of the mountains nearby very clearly on the pristine waters. Absolutely magnificent. Suitable for children, elderly. Dog friendly.

This is a very easy hike through the largest, high alpine meadow in all of Europe. The Alpe di Siusi (Italian) or Seiser Alm (German), has many trails to walk on. Situated in northern Italy’s South Tyrol area, it has views that are incredible. And everything in this area is still signed in both Italian and German. It is a very popular skiing destination in the winter also. We made our way from the town we stayed in to Castelrotto, and then just beyond to Siusi, where we took the gondola up to Compatsch. Once off the gondola, you can walk pretty much anywhere. We were going to originally try for the top of Sciliar, but that didn’t pan out this time. So we did this simple loop to get a feel for the meadow. So many options to choose from, I would love to come back here some day and do more of the trails. If ever in this part of Northern Italy, I highly recommend this as a nice easy day spent with endless views.

Was a great hike up to the mountain crest trails. You start out in a little bit of forest paralleling a creek. Eventually you hit a little meadow then a larger valley area with beautiful scenery. Then you hit some switch backs to make your way all the way up the hill side. I then hit the trail 349 and went up through the saddle and down into the basin where there was one of the 3 lakes. Then continued onto the second smaller lake and hit trail 339 and made my way back to the trailhead in Malga Valmaggiore. I would recommend this to get away from everyone. When driving up there watch out for logging trucks on the very tight road. In some case you might have to back up to a turnout spot to allow the oncoming car to get by.

You start out in a little dairy "town". This hike leads up to 3 nice and relaxing lakes. Great little day hike. There are plenty of routes that loop back to the trailhead if you want to make it longer. I would recommend going from trail 339 to 349.
