Das Spiegelbild des Piz Nair

An insider tip as you rarely find it anymore.


The Witches' Lake or "Lai dalla stria", as it is called in the Romance language, is a very unusual mountain lake. The bright round-cut rocks and the deep blue of the water create a unique contrast. And when it is completely windless, the rugged rocks of Piz Nair are reflected in it. A photo subject of a special kind.

In the vicinity of the lake there are mossy spots with rare flowers between the rocks. Crystals can also be found, because the area is very rich in minerals.

Hiking time: From Rueras, 2.5 - 3h ( Since 2021, the hiking trail to the lake is signposted white/red)

Opening hours

The lake is snow-free from the beginning of July, but the snowfields around it remain quite long away.
