Passo Manghen is where the main Lagorai chain begins. Classic ring tour that gives hikers great horizons, stony peaks and the typical vegetation of the high mountains.
The main goal in our itinerary, Lake Buse is a stretch of water nestled among green pastures. In early July, the spectacular flowering of rhododendrons gives the landscape an enchanting note, together with juniper shrubs and blueberry plants. The name of the lake in the Val di Fiemme dialect means "lake of holes".
If you go the other way around, you can reach Lake Buse in about an hour's walk.
