Cinque Laghi (Five Lakes) – Lago Ritorto - Madonna di Campiglio
Mountain tour • Madonna di Campiglio, Pinzolo and Val Rendena
Thanks to the brand new “Cinque Laghi” ski lift, you can easily cover this marvellous itinerary in some exceptional breathtaking natural surroundings. Lago Ritorto is the largest and, probably, the most fascinating of the famous 5 lakes of Campiglio (Ritort, Lambin, Gelato, Serodoli and Nambino). All you need to do to reach it is to make the 10 minute walk from the uphill station of the “Cinque Laghi”. However, despite the proximity to the ski lifts, you are immediately transported into the marvellous world of the Alpine lakes of the Adamello Group, far from the actual ski pistes.
The pleasant descent that follows to Malga Ritort, and the return leg of the trek, along the trail to Madonna di Campiglio, offer beautiful views of the Brenta. The view from the mountain dairy, in fact, is among the widest and most picturesque of the entire chain.
