Starting point:
Cevo, a village in the municipality of Civo. Small parking lots scattered.

Trail description:
From the village of Cevo, walk toward the hydroelectric power station, cross a bridge and climb steeply the long trail through a deep forest crossing a first group of lodges.
Continue climbing the steep trail and crossing nearby the second group of lodges (in ruins).

Up to this point the trail is still visible for the passage of the animals who go over the mountain pastures. Continue climbing through a forest more and more open but with a not very clear trail, until you’ll reach the upper part of the valley nearby a big lodge.
From here the trail is lost among the tall grass but pointing up you can easily climb until you’ll reach a small river, around 2000 m. of elevation.
Cross the river at the ford and in 30 minutes you’ll reach the first group of lakes. Continue climbing and you’ll reach the median lakes (those in the picture) and soon after the main lake, 2160 m.
Wild and lonely place.

Along the same trail.

Connected trail:
From Laghi di Spluga you can cross to Colino Pass and descend toward Poira di Civo.
A very long but outstanding hike without shelters or refuges along the trail and on the summit.
