The lake lies on the heights between the Adige Valley and the Cembra Valley, already a little outside the South Tyrolean border in Trentino. A wide belt of reeds surrounds the lake with its crystal-clear waters; the mountains of the Fiemme Valley rise in the background.
The hike begins in the southernmost village in South Tyrol: from the church square in Salorno. Briefly on the road in the direction of Buchholz, then turn right, following M 1 to Buchholzer Street, now continue on this road for a while, passing by farmsteads to the highest, the Maierhofer- or Maroferhof (684 m); from there through mixed woods to the Sauch Hut on the edge of a grass island (946 m; guest house; from Salorno 2:30 hrs.) and on Trail 1 through the woods, climbing to the lake (1195 m). The descent follows the ascent path. You can also turn left after Sauch and descend on trail 409 through the Salomon and Notdurfter farms; this trail is somewhat shorter than the other.
