Lake Misurina (Italian: Lago di Misurina; Cadorino dialect: Lago de Meśorìna) is the largest natural lake of the Cadore and it is 1,754 m above sea level, near Auronzo di Cadore (Belluno). The lake's perimeter is 2.6 km long, while the maximum depth is 5 m. Near the lake there are about ten hotels with accommodation for around 500 people.
The particular climatic characteristics of the area around the lake make particularly good air for those who have respiratory diseases. Near the lake is the only center in Italy for the care of childhood asthma.
The lake was the theme of a famous song by Claudio Baglioni. Lake Misurina is also the theme of the theatrical representation of the Longane di Lozzo.
Lake Misurina is where the speed skating events were held during the 1956 Winter Olympics of Cortina d'Ampezzo – the last time Olympic speed skating events were held on natural ice.
Misurina lies on the route of the Dolomites Gold Cup Race.
The site of the Dolomites comprises a mountain range in the northern Italian Alps, numbering 18 peaks which rise to above 3,000 metres and cover 141,903 ha. It features some of the most beautiful mountain landscapes anywhere, with vertical walls, sheer cliffs and a high density of narrow, deep and long valleys. A serial property of nine areas that present a diversity of spectacular landscapes of international significance for geomorphology marked by steeples, pinnacles and rock walls, the site also contains glacial landforms and karst systems. It is characterized by dynamic processes with frequent landslides, floods and avalanches. The property also features one of the best examples of the preservation of Mesozoic carbonate platform systems, with fossil records. The nine components of The Dolomites World Heritage property protect a series of highly distinctive mountain landscapes that are of exceptional natural beauty. Their dramatic vertical and pale coloured peaks in a variety of distinctive sculptural forms is extraordinary in a global context. This property also contains an internationally important combination of earth science values. The quantity and concentration of highly varied limestone formations is extraordinary in a global context, whilst the superbly exposed geology provides an insight into the recovery of marine life in the Triassic period, after the greatest extinction event recorded in the history of life on Earth. The sublime, monumental and colourful landscapes of the Dolomites have also long attracted hosts of travellers and a history of scientific and artistic interpretations of its values.
Ever seen a lake so calm and perfect to give you this reflection? You can simply go there by car, enjoying the ride along the mountains before reaching that place. Tip: Come in the early morning or evening to have less people around you!

#Italy Dolomites: 9 panoramic photos, showing the shocking trend #
Dolomite, refers to the ridge of the eastern part of the northern Italian Alps. Its mountain is made of light-colored limestone, which is jagged and has many cliffs.
Across the borders of Veneto, Trentino and Upper Adige, the Dolomites, made up of huge rock masses, have their own rough and heroic environment.
Humans invented a panoramic photo, but how can the photo accommodate the momentum of the Dolomites.
High and low, it is like a scroll, but it has a majestic picture that cannot be depicted.
At the height of the mountain, there are clouds of the same style.
and Qingshan Cuigu is under the clouds.
The valley, the beautiful and lively town, the rustic country buildings, and the unique wood carving shops highlight the unique cultural characteristics of the area.
In this view of the mountains, sighing nature can be compared to non-text!
The Alps left the most beautiful scenery in the Dolomites
mention the Alps, the first reaction is definitely Austria's snow-capped mountains. What Italy thinks of is some architecture and culture, so that friends who have stayed in Italy for so many years do not know the mountains there. Some people say that God intends to buy the best scenery for Italy, while Italy has left the most beautiful mountains to the Dolomites. This is not a mistake. Unlike the mountains in those areas, the mountains in this place are some lighter dolomites. As for what we call the big mountains as big stones, the changes from the forest and the rocks constitute a unique landscape.
In the Italian Dolomites, there are scattered lakes of different sizes. They are responsible for all the agility here, and they are the eyes of the mountains. We chose to wait for the sunrise at Lake Antorno in the Twin Lakes, just outside the arrow to the more famous Misurina.
The double lake in the morning is unusually quiet, the mist is light, the grass is covered with micro-frost, the lake is a contiguous forest, and the magnificent Cristallo Mountain is raised above the colorful forest, with an altitude of over 3,000 meters. Like a giant screen, across the sky, the mountains are not covered with grass, and the snow is vertical and horizontal. On the other side of the lake is the Dolomites' landmark Sanfeng Mountain, which stretches into the sky sharply. The early wild ducks swam around us, played and played, and broke the silence of the morning. Inadvertently looking up, the first dawn has come, and the huge Cristallo is dyed golden.
After sunrise, we continue to search for the most beautiful lake in the Dolomites, Lago di Braies. It is hidden in the mountains and surrounded by tall mountains. The lake is not big, but the water depth is more than 30 meters, and the water is green. The lake is extremely clear, and the dead wood and boulders in the water are clearly visible. The surrounding forest is dip-dyed and reflected into the lake. There is a wooden houseboat in the lake, and you can take a wooden boat to swim in the lake, such as a mirror. The Croda del Becco mountain, which is tall on the lake, is like the fairy god in the Sanshen Mountain in western Sichuan. A small church built in 1904, quietly guarded. Sitting with the chapel on the lake, doing nothing, maybe the best arrangement.
The Dolomites are located on the edge of the border between the Veneto region and the Trentino-Alto Adige region in northeastern Italy. The core protected area is 1359.11km%. The Dolomites Heritage Site is part of the Northern Italian Alps. There are as many as 18 peaks above 3000m. The sequence heritage site consisting of 9 regions shows outstanding mountain view diversity. There are landmark landscape types in international geomorphological studies such as peak clusters, peak needles and rock walls, including glacial landforms and karst landform systems. Frequent landslides, floods and avalanches present a distinctive dynamic geological process
