If you ever visit Dolomites, Lago di Sorapis is another must see thing! To be honest every day spent in the Dolomites was amazing, but the day we hiked to Lago di Sorapis was my favourite. Why? Keep on reading.
We left our car not far from the Misurina passo and headed to the lake. The day before, when we hiked around Tre Cime di Lavredo (read more about it here ) the weather was sunny and surprisingly warm regarding the altitude. Most of the hike all we wore was a t-shirt.
On the day of visitng Lago di Sorapis the weather was even better, crystal clear skies, not a single cloud, but it got much colder during the night, so the temperature difference was quite obvious. Thankfully we brought enough warm clothes, so we were not too cold.
The hike takes you around 1h 30mins and rewards you with a thousand astonishing views over the Dolomites. It is such a beautiful hiking path, you automatically concentrate on views rather than hiking, so it goes by really fast. Just like that we found ourselves on our destination and saw the beautiful lake for the first time in real life.
The one thing that makes Lago di Sorapis so special is it’s light turquise colour. If you ever saw the lake in pictures and guessed whether this unnatural colour was photoshoped, I can assure you it was not. It is very true and looks even more amazing in real life.
We had a nice lunch by the lake and talked about life, also took some pictures ( of course) and took a walk around the lake. We spent quite good amount of time by the lake, because we couldn’t convince ourselves to leave that amazing spot.
As I mentioned before this was my favourite day in the Dolomites and probably one of the best days of my life, let’s say top 10, if not top 5. Everything made it so special, the sunny weather, the lake itself –of course and the good company. Sitting beside a person I love, in a place I wanted to visit for so long, surrounded by beautiful mountains and nature, thinking about the places we’ve been to and places we’ll visit in near future – ahhh!
Those are moments we live for, I live for. Those moments make up for everything and give me so much elan and excitement for everything that’s yet to come. And what’s yet to come, travel wise? Let me just say this road trip to Dolomites was kind of an “overture” to a bit “bigger” trip, for which I leave in only two weeks!
