Turn-by-turn directions

From Ballino follow the SAT 406 towards Loc. Castìl. Stop for a short while to admire the sheer rocky walls of Mount Cogorna and the Val d’Inferni gorge with its Dòss della Torta. Continue following the signs to enter a forest of beech and conifer trees. After half an hour, you will come to a gigantic rock formation. Turn right passing the rocky boulder and, after a short steep climb, you will come to the Grotta Camerona. The cave is truly enormous boasting a width of 20m and a height of 12m. After a visit to the cave, descend along the same path and continue towards the “Laghisòi” area. The path carries on through a wood of conifers and after a short climb it starts descending towards Lake Tenno. The lake formed following a landslide from Monte Magnone and now rests at the bottom of a green valley enclosed by woods.  Measuring 720m long, 270m wide and 50m deep, it has crystal clear waters whose colour changes with the weather. After looping around the lake, re-join the road which is partly covered in cobblestones. Shortly after, you will catch sight of the boroughs of Ville del Monte and the medieval town of Canale di Tenno, one of “The most Beautiful Villages in Italy”. This historic hamlet is famous for its charming rural architecture, worth visiting and cherishing in your memories. At the end of the visit, return to Ballino along the same route or catch public transport from Ville del Monte.

Getting there

From ponte Arche follow the street signs to Ballino Pass (about 10 km).
