Lago di Andalo

Lake Andalo is a seasonal lake, the only one of its kind in the region. The Lake's shape stretches from north to south, and is surrounded by the hilly plateau on which the town of Andalo rises and the slopes of Mount Gallino. Located at a height of 998 m a.s.l., it is 1,450 m long and 350 m wide. Lake Andalo usually fills up from the beginning of April until mid-June. Then the water level drops fast until it completely disappears, only to reappear during the rainy season in autumn. Once it reaches its maximum capacity, the flooding water overflows into Rio di Lambin stream towards Molveno. From a morphological point of view this is a limestone depression, partly filled in with gravel and sand. The lake waters are not particularly rich in animal life, the only fish species present being the minnow.
