Lake of Place Moulin
This artificial lake is famous for its intense color and for the surrounding natural landscape, which in summer and autumn offers truly impressive shades of colors.
Description of the route
Known as ‘Place Moulin’, this is the highest altitude arch dam of Europe and can be reached along the regional road leading to Bionaz along the Valpelline. At the entrance of the village a junction can be found: take the road to the left towards the Place Moulin dam and continue straight ahead along the main road until reaching a wall, where some parking spaces are located. Leave the car there and continue on foot for about 4 km along the unpaved road which runs around the entire lake, until reaching the Prarayer village (approximately an hour’s walk).
