Its origins are rooted in legend. It is said of savages who came to the mountains of the Braies Valley in search of precious stones and gold. When they managed to find something of great value, they sparked the envy of the shepherds of the valley, who tried to rob them. However, to protect the loot, the savages opened underground fountains and then hid the treasure in Lake Braies, giving it the brilliant color that we can admire today.

The return takes place on an asphalt road and cycle path up to Carbonin.
