Antermoia Lake

Lake Antermoia is a glacial lake in the Catinaccio Massif, in the Fassa Valley. During the thawing period, the lake is fed by small springs of the Ruf de Antermoia, which flows mostly underground, and then becomes an emissary with the Ruf de Udai stream, giving this lake the peculiarity that it does not dry up in the summer as happens with other lakes of glacial origin. Near the lake is the Antermoia Hut (2,496 m).
