There are unbelievably crystal-clear lakes, inviting sparkling turquoise lakes, mystical green shimmering lakes, larger and smaller as well as warmer and colder lakes. The Grison mountain lakes are all beautiful. The route to these mountainous havens can also be just as beautiful and impressive. Whether in Puschlav, at the Bernina Pass, in Bergell, Schanfigg or in the Surselva. A mountain lake hike is a wonderful experience throughout the entire canton.
