About This Spot

Lago di Val Viola (Lagh da Val Viola) is a lake in the Grisons, Switzerland. It is situated just below the border with the italian Val Viola. There are different 3000 meters peaks around it. The waters are deep blue and provide beautiful reflection of the mountains around, just like a mirror. It is possible to camp on the north-west shore of the lake with a tent.

Keep in mind that this is a mountain trail. You should be prepared for any change in the weather and in the temperature. Always bring enough water, warm clothes and hiking shoes. Also you should always bring your trash to the car, and, if you can, it is good to leave the place a little better than before.
The hike starts from that road. As soon as the road levels down a bit (spot labeled 'trailhead')you can either follow the dirty road up to Rifugio Saoseo and the Lagh da Saoseo or follow the trail, much more rewarding and beautiful, to Lagh da Saoseo. From Lagh da Saoseo follow the sign to Lagh da Val Viola. From the parking lot it will take you up to 3/4 hours depending on you pace and on the route chosen.
