The legend of "Antermoia" (in the Ladin language "L mal d'amor).

Take the chair lifts Vajolet 1 and Vajolet 2 from Pera to "Gardeccia", and take the mule track no. 546 till refuges Preuss and Vajolet. Ascend on the steep path no. 584 that brings to Passo Principe Refuge at 2,600 m (1 h; 2 hrs). Continue on the right and zigzag up to Antermoia Pass at 2,770 m (0.30 h; 2.30 hrs). Descend the slope skirting the lake (legend tells that the witches of Fassa would meet here) to Antermoia Refuge at 2,497 m (0.45 h; 3.15 hrs). Keep going on path no. 580 towards Dona Pass and descend leftwards in Dona Valley. Take path no. 578 till "Ciarèjoles" Pass (2,282 m). The path leads to the grazing at "Ciamp de Grévena" and to the stream "Ruf de Duron". Beyond the bridge, take path no. 532 to Micheluzzi Refuge at 1,850 m (1,45 h; 5 hrs). From that point you can reach Campitello (0,45 h; 5,45 hrs). The partially karstic origin of this lake affects the changes in its water levels that are affected not only by the changes in season but also the nature of the soil and the melting of perpetual snow.

Curiosity: the Antermoia Lake is the only fairly large-sized lake existing in the Catinaccio dolomitic range. It is quite famous for the crystal clear colour of the water that, however, does not harbour any fish species at all.
