Lake braies in winter

The last stage of my journey on the road between the Dolomites, a magical place, an enchanted valley and a circle of water one step from heaven. Today I’ll tell you all about the lake braies in winter.

Remember my journey on the road between the Dolomites? On social and on my Facebook page I have received many requests and questions. Who ask me about the best Christmas markets in the area, who about the typical dishes and the most common question: what was the last stop of my tour.

Well today I answer to this last question, I do it with my eyes a little heart, the heart beating and a thousand of emotions and a series of images of Lake braies in winter, the last stop of my journey.

Lake braies  in winter: a step away from heaven

After visiting the Alta Badia and Val Pusteria we left for the Val di braies, a small corner of paradise that was high on my list of places to see a lot of time.

The Braies Valley is the valley adjacent to the Pustertal and from Terento (where I stayed in Falkensteiner Sonnenparadies) is about an hour’s drive.

Once you reach your destination leave the car in the parking adjacent to the lake and in front of me the wonder of wonders. The lake is completely frozen and the outside temperature is 12 degrees below zero (however was a “hot” day for the locals). It’s like being on the moon: the dolomite rocks, ice cold and the constant rumble of the cracks in the ice due to the rising of the sun (here the sun rises at 12:00 and sets at 12:40, for the rest of the day in winter the sky is slightly illuminated ).

Before I leave you to the photos of Lake braies in winter let me tell you the legend on the formation of this lake that really intrigued me:

Legend has it that the Braies valley was inhabited by some wild look bad that guarded the gold present in the nearby mountains. To these figures gold was valued for its splendor but made them hard in the soul. When it appeared in the valley some breeders together with their livestock, wild figures presented them with some products items with their gold. Breeders seeing such an abundance of gold became greedy and started to take possession of raw materials, stealing the people of savages. The population of wild decided to prevent farmers to reach the mountains, and did pour some water sources, which created downstream Lake Braies, that prevented farmers to further steal the gold to the wild.

What do you think? You intrigued? I’ll leave you to all photos taken during this last stage and video.
