Laghestel

Outings and hikes at Laghestel di Pinè, one of the first and most famous biotopes.

Laghestel

Laghestel di Pinè is a vast basin of glacial origin, dug out in porphyry rock, featuring wet meadows and swamps. In 1971 it became the first protected biotope in Trentino. The municipality of Baselga di Pinè wanted this area to be safeguarded for its high naturalistic value. The access to the path for visiting the biotope is located along the provincial road leading from Baselga di Pinè to Montagnana, near Ferrari area. It is a circular path winding along the land occupied by the biotope, and the entire route takes about two hours and a half to be completed.
Laghestel is an age-old lake, which had become almost completely a bog and turned into swamplands, but there is a remaining water surface still considerably wide, surrounded by a vast cane thicket. The biotope hosts 129 botanical species, some of which are very rare, and 9 hygrophilic vegetal associations, all extremely precious, such as the cane thicket, various types of sedge fields, wet meadows and hygrophilic forests. Since 1975 the water turns red in the summertime because of a unicellular algae - the Euglena sanguinea algae. The great variety of environments making up the biotope also favours the survival of a particularly rich variety of fauna, especially water-related species.
