In this chapter we discuss one of the most fascinating areas of the Dolomites, a World Heritage Site, the marvelous Misurina Lake.
Misurina lake, located at 1754 m (s.l.m.), lies in one of the most beautiful areas of the Alps and is surrounded by forests and peaks of exceptional grandeur. Near the lake there’s the only center in Italy for the treatment of childhood asthma, because the particular climatic characteristics of the area, make the air suitable for those suffering from respiratory diseases.
In particular: to the east of the lake we find the Cadini di Misurina chain and the Sesto Dolomites, to the north, the road leading to the Tre Cime di Lavaredo and, finally, to the south the Sorapiss Group and the Ampezzane Dolomites. In winter, the lake completely freezes, becoming accessible in all its extension, in fact the polo games take place on the surface.
