Description
This is a great one-day hike, or you can spend a night in Capanna d'Efra and combine this with other hikes. The first hour takes you through a forest all the way to the base of the peak. This is a magnificent place for a short pause amongst many small waterfalls with little pools of water. This is so nice that it's actually worth doing as a short hike on its own if you don't have time to climb all the way up to the lake. You then continue a steep path up next to the falls, then through another forest until Alpe d'Efra, a group of rusticos beautifully overlooking the valley and with a great view of the surrounding peaks. The rest of the hike offers continous spectacular views, including a stunning view of the lake. Another half an hour up will take you to Capanne Efra.

The way down follows the same path.
