The beautiful Lake Landro (Dürrensee) is part of the Tre Cime Nature Park and accessible from Dobbiaco.
From Dobbiaco, in the Alta Val Pusteria, Lake Landro in the inner Val di Landro, is accessible. It is already located in the Tre Cime Nature Park, like that it is protected area, and the Fanes-Senes-Braies Nature Park is directly connected to its western bank. The gorgeous alpine world around the turquoise mountain lake is very popular. Among others, Lake Landro offers a unique view on the Cristallo Group and the Ampezzo Dolomites. And near the lake, towards Dobbiaco, the famous “Tre Cime View” is situated.
Besides Lake Braies and Lake Dobbiaco, Lake Landro is among the three largest natural lakes in the Alta Val Pusteria. Despite of its high location at more than 1,400 m asl, the water is quite warm, because it has only few feeders and no drainage. The lake is starting point for numerous mountain hikes in summer, e.g. on the Monte Piano (2,324 m asl) in the Sesto Dolomites or to the Antonio Locatelli mountain hut (2,405 m asl) at the foot of the Monte Paterno.
Directly at the lake, the path 6a proceeds past the typical cairns to the “Valle della Rienza” climbing crag. Also at the lake there are nice spots to relax, for example the pebble beach on the northern bank. On the west bank of Lake Landro, a little restaurant can be found. In summer, the mountain bike route Dobbiaco-Cortina proceeds here, in winter, however, this area is a paradise for cross country skiers.
