    I don't do usually do waterfalls. But after a strong recommendation from our hotel, I am glad I was flexible. This waterfall is quite simply stunning and mesmerising.
    The waterfall is the 2nd highest in Europe apparently. But I think you got a better sense of the size and perspective by standing at the bottom.
    If you are at the bottom when the waterfall is in full flow (11.30am-to1.30pm) you might need a rain jacket - I just sat there and watched the water pounding the rocks for half an hour.
    There is more parking at the top of the waterfall, along with a viewing platform of sorts, which gives great views back down the valley. This is a must-see attraction for anyone visiting the area.

    The Lago di Morasco is a very big artifical lake created by the Morasco Dam for energy generation. The wall of the dam is extremely big. Even if there are several signs of the energy production the place is very nice. THe mountains are reflected in the water of the lake. It is the starting point for amazing hikings as Bettelmap Alp, Gries Alp or Lago dei Sabbioni.

    Riale is a little jewel both in summer and in winter. I have been several time in winter for skiing and this summer i came back here for hiking to the Lago dei Sabbioni. It is a small village at the end of the valley but it deserves all the road to be done. It is simply a magical place

    Just happened to see this place on our drive back down from the waterfall so we decided to stop. They make their own cheeses, yogurt and gelato and have these for sale (also butter and "fiocchi di latte," which is like cottage cheese) in the small shop. In particular I thought the Greek yogurt was delicious (I got the plain kind but they have varieties with fruit and also almonds and honey). The gelato was also excellent.

    What a discovery! I knew the chees Bettelmatt but i have never been on this Alp where the cheese is made. It is 1hr walking from Lago of Morasco and it is a little piece of paradise. From here start the hikings to Corno Gries or to the Rifugio Citta' di Busto.
    There is not a place for a lunch or a coffee but this, if possible, makes this places ever more magical

    It was my dream since i was 20 years old. This year finally i was able to hike to Lago dei Sabbioni. We made the complete tour of the Rifugi (Alpe Bettelmatt, Rifugio citta' di Busto, Rifugio 3A, Rifugio Claudio e Bruno e Diga dei Sabbioni). THe lake is amazing, the colour is like the photo of the most famous canadian lakes. ALl around mountains and glaciers. It is not so easy to reach so it is not very crowded.
    A must do!

    We made this hike in a beatiful day. We took the chairlift from Valdo and then it's 1.5hrs of hike. The first 30-40min are hard then it is quite easy (my son of 5years was able to do the entire hike). The lake vannino is an artificial lake. The colour is amazing, one of the best of the lakes of this region. It's blue like in some Canadian lakes photos.
    A very nice hike highly suggested
