Lake Tovel is the largest natural lake in the Val di Non and is located at 1,178 meters above sea level.
Its waters are crystal clear and reflect the magical setting of the surrounding mountains with a spectacular mirror effect. These feed the Tresenica torrent which crosses the whole Tovel valley and then flows into the Noce.
The particular aspect that characterizes it is that during the summer season the southwest part of the basin was tinged with a blood red color, a very rare phenomenon that unfortunately for some years has been difficult to review, in fact today we can only admire some photographs of it. epoch that show it a phenomenal red. This coloring is to be attributed to Tovellia Sanguinea, an alga present in these waters and which in particular conditions blooms so as to color the waters. But if on one hand this lake is absolutely spectacular, the whole valley is not less so, it has a wild aspect to the point of making it exciting and magnetic.
