  • Drive to the car park is amazing scenery with very narrow roads. An experience in itself. From the car park, there is a clear path to the Lac du Melu and Lac du Capitello. It is a challenging day...

  • It was an amazing hike. Although getting to the trail takes nerves of steal through. At least if you’re driving. There is a shuttle that goes to the trailhead. You can ask around if if you’re staying at one of the local hotels ask about the shuttle. Round trip it will set you back 15 euro a person. The shuttle only takes cash too. Believe the driver is like a wizard. You want him to drive!
  • Spectacular scenery once you've navigated the windy road up to the carpark. Few stopping places on the way where you can shade under the trees and alongside the river for a picnic. If you're wanting to trek to the lake, be warned that the information signs are misleading. It is a very challenging & long climb to the top. There is a midway point where you can get a cold drink & snack but beyond that, it is difficult terrain with climbing over rocks involved.
