Located around 2 km southwest of the village of Doberdò, not far from the Adriatic coast, the water of this lake is filtered through various ponors, and it is connected with the springs feeding the Timavo River. The water level is variable, and flooding periods (spring and autumn) alternate with drying up periods (winter and summer).
During the frequent drought periods, the lake almost completely disappears, becoming a marsh-like area.
At the meeting point, you’ll receive your start briefing. After that, there’ll be 10 minutes car drive to the tour starting point. This hike is easy and suitable for everyone.
