Beautiful hike...beautiful reward. Get going early as there could be crowds. If you can wear hiking shoes. We wore tennis shoes and definitely not enough support for the feet and ankles. It's a very rocky hike.

If you have a reasonable level of fitness this is a must see. Hiking shoes are a must as some of the paths are rocky. The hike took us around an hour and 40 minutes and was well worth it. The lake is stunning!! We...More

We did this hike in mid August on a Sunday morning, and it was packed, all the Italians came for a day trip! However that aside, once you get to the lake, the scenery and views are simply amazing and breathtaking. The hike sounds pretty...More

An amazing and awesome place surrounded by mountains. The color of the water in the lake looks fabulous. It is worth to see it once in your life. It is better to be in the morning to avoid a crowd. More than recommended!

Beautiful scenery on the hike up and when you finally get to the lake it is breathtaking. The colour is surreal. However, I would recommend to get there early to avoid the crowds. It took us around 4 hours including lunch stops and picture stops...More

We left the Tre Croce pass early but even then, the climb was more of a procession than a hike. The path is narrow and steep at places, yet the hordes of tourists show in light sneakers or even sandals, carrying crying infants and dragging...More

This was a moderately challenging hike, only because of the mildly harrowing via ferrata-type chains and ladders in the middle section. The end result - the lake - is far worth the hike and was a highlight of our trip in Cortina.

While trekking on the Alta Via 4 we stayed at Rifugio Vandelli. If somebody would have told me I would experience a lake with an incredible blue color, I would have said "Oh, great, thanks for the info!" and integrate it with my knowledge of...More

The lake is cold but a few people were swimming in it, and without any kind of wet suit. It's an alpine lake :) so be prepared for cold water. It might be a quick swim.

You can get to the trailhead by car, but from there you must hike up by foot and it’s 5 hrs return plus 1 hr to enjoy the lake and Rifugio. Well worth it though. Can’t comment on timing as I have only travelled there in... More

The entry point is near Passo Tre Croci, which is signed. You'll see lots of cars parked along the road, and the entry point to the trail has a large sign.

No not yet . We are kind of a last minute planners. From what I have seen all places with beautiful location and reasonable price are already booked. What else are you planning to visit in the Dolomites?
