The lights are magnificent and softly embrace the surrounding landscape. Each area is beautiful to look at and I don't think we’ve ever taken as many breaks as we have in the Dolomites. Our breathing starts to speed up as we feel the positive elevation. The trail changes colour from green to yellow as the sun hits the ground. As we go along, you get the impression the trail is narrowing, wait... It’s not an impression.
Advice to those with vertigo that this route may prove difficult. A little before arriving at the lake, the trail becomes more and more narrow along the cliffside and it's impossible to walk side by side. A little adventure within an adventure. Good luck, it's worth it, promise.
After almost two and a half hours of walking, I begin to hear running water so we aren’t too far away. The excitement silences us and believe me, that’s rare. 200 m, 100 m, 50 m... we’re there.
I have no words...
Now I understand why they say that the Lago di Sorapis hike is the most beautiful in the Dolomites.
Whether it's the route to get to the lake or the lake and its surrounding, it's completely magic.
We take the time to look from every angle, crawl in between the rock, sit down for several minutes and have breakfast (yes, we love eating). We feel wonderfully well here. Believe me, I will remember this apple and this sandwich forever.
