Lake Antermoia – The Dolomites

Passo Antermoia – 2770m altitude – the most beautiful view I have seen so far in my hikes and it is the highest altitude I have ever got so far. It feels good!

I can visibly see how the mist is rising from the base, it is coming fast so we are unable to spend more time in this place, so slowly started descending to lake Antermoia.

As we walk down we discover more amazing places, the valley is absolutely stunning. Everything looks gray and without too much live in it, yet it is so satisfying to watch.

We are tempted rush down the the valley, but it can turn out wrong if we rush this. Descending is pretty dangerous, in specially with weight on your back. The entire weight is held by the knees, so we need to be careful as it can get damage it.

Probably in less then 2 hours we arrive to the lake with the most amazing blue water I have ever seen. In some of its corners we can still find loads of snow. We threw down our bags and took a break to admire the view.

Antermoia refuge is just a few steps from the lake so we stopped there to eat something and plan further our descend and the plan for our next chain of mountains.
