Lakes

There are two lakes in the Park: Stua lake, in Val di Canzoi (Municipality of Cesiomaggiore) and Mis lake, in the homonymous valley (Municipality of Sospirolo).
They are both artificial basins built for hydroelectric purposes and represent important elements of the landscape, especially Mis lake, which develops for about 4 km along the valley and represents a classic summer resort on Sundays. Moreover, the presence of these lakes helps to increase the variety of fauna: they are important for fish and amphibians reproducing in their waters.
Some bird species like this kind of habitat: Mallards, for instance, spend the winter in the area of Mis lake.
