Recommended itinerary for the natural science lovers and for families: some information panels positioned on the path, will offer opportunities of knowledge of the particular natural and local ecosystem among biotopes, mountainous bumps, dry stone walls, ice holes and much more.

Author’s recommendation

Along the proposed route it is possible to observe the Lases Lake in its entirety, appreciating the rich flora and fauna, the “palù redont” biotope, and the "Val Fredda" (which means cold valley) with the characteristic phenomenon of ice holes.

Risks or difficulties present along the route: lack of adequate signage in the first part of the route, pay attention to the description "turn-by-turn directions"; path also suitable for children and families but not with strollers, as the final stretch of the path has some steep steps going down to the lake. Pay attention!

  • Prepare your itinerary beforehand

  • Pay attention to signposts and directions that you find along your way

Please note that the practicability of the itineraries in a mountain environment is strictly linked to the contingent conditions and is therefore influenced by natural phenomena, environmental changes and weather conditions. For this reason, the information contained in this page may have changed. Before leaving for a tour, make sure the path you will approach is still accessible by contacting the owner of the mountain hut, the alpine guides or the visitor centres of the nature parks, the info offices of the local tourist board.

Lases Lake - lawn beach

Turn-by-turn directions

Near the provincial road an information panel welcomes us to the Lona-Lases nature reserve.  Once we get off the beach, we start the tour in a clockwise direction, so we continue eastwards guided by a nice walk.  Now we go up towards the town (yellow arrows) arriving at a crossroads of roads with a fountain, we continue in a north-east direction following the signs for "palù redont".  Arrived at the second crossroads (with the presence of a metal sheet tool shed) we continue straight (and not on the right for "Val Fredda") and at the next fork we take left.

Once in "Palù Redont", an interesting biotope with the shape of an amphitheater with a diameter of 130-150 meters, we take an uphill path with signs for "Doss Costei" (always follow the yellow arrows drawn on wood) and, before to come out on the provincial road, we turn right reaching a berries' field.  We continue for a while and when we reach a forest road we turn left and then take another on the right. Follow this ignoring the two roads that we will meet going up and that continue to the right; the road goes through hairpin bends and reaches a large information panel dedicated to the Lona-Lases biotope.  From there we follow the signs for "Val Fredda", taking a forest road.  Walking through the "Val Fredda" it is easy to understand the origin of this name and the charm of this place on hot summer afternoons.

After passing a porphyry quarry, we follow the signs for the "sentiero circumlacuale (circumlacual path)" and continue while enjoying the lake view. This is the most scenic stretch of the proposed tour but also the most technical: the way down develops along a path with some steep steps. Pay attention! The tour continues passing a pink house and continuing among the reeds on the walkway that cuts the biotope south of the lake, together with some typical birds. For short stretches, in the final part, the path stops and runs alongside the provincial road.  Arriving at the well-kept grassy beach, you will soon return to the car parking.

Equipment

  • snacks (e.g. mixed dried fruit or chocolate)
