Explore – Three Peaks
I was really excited to go to Three Peaks as a nine kilometer gentle hike was planned to see the three peaks from different angles. Three Peaks are the landmark of the Dolomites and the nature highlight of the Alta Pusteria. The weather forecast was showing rain later and my itinerary also included the Lago Di Braies lake which is another amazing sight of this region. This landmark also needs some sunlight to get the best out of it. So Three Peaks part was cancelled but I hope to get back another time in order to be able to fully appreciate this. I put a picture up for you to see why this needs to be part of your itinerary on your trip to South Tyrol.
Explore – Lago Di Braies
So with Three Peaks trip cancelled I went of to Braies to see Lago the Braies also known as Pragser Wildsee. On arrival the sun was still shining and I completely understood why you have to see this lake with sunlight as it is an absolutely stunning one. It is a paradise; no wonder it has been used in many Italian movies. Limestone mountains and green trees meet a beautiful green blueish large lake, which also is one of the deepest natural lakes in the Dolomites. We decided to walk around the lake, which when you take it easy takes about one hour to complete. You can also rent a boat at the lovely wooden boathouse and explore the lake and surroundings that way.
