The lake of a thousand colours, Lake Carezza in Val d'Ega is the famous fairytale lake of the Dolomites, where, according to legend, a water nymph lives and in whose crystal clear waters the Catinaccio and Latemar are reflected. Lake Carezza changes colour, which is why it is also known as Lec de Ergobando - Rainbow lake.
Lake Carezza is 300 m long and 140 m wide and lies below the Latemar massif, on the edge of the Latemar forest, at 1,520 m in the Val d'Ega.  It is a protected natural monument and is fed by underground Latemar springs, which is why both its size and depth depend strongly on the season and weather conditions - the deepest depth of Lake Carezza is recorded at 22 m.
