Lake Pian Palù, with its unmistakable emerald-coloured waters, is one of the iconic places in Val di Sole.
Lake Pian Palù in Stelvio National Park, is an artificial reservoir built in the fifties that uses the water in the River Noce to produce hydroelectric power. Its characteristic emerald colour makes it a beautiful place for a peaceful walk around its banks, at 2,455 m asl.
Lake Pian Palù is part of the Uno Di Un Milione project. Here, through the QR codes on the original water bottles and the dedicated app, you can take part in an experience of art, relation and participation that will help you explore the water running through Val di Sole, discovering how the community in this valley has creatively imagined its own vision of protection for the environment and future generations.

About an hour’s walk and 300 metres above Lake Pian Palù, we suggest you visit another point that is part of the Uno Di Un Milione project: Malga Paludei. This place enchants nature lovers and at the same time brings to mind the tragic events linked to the war, with a splendid poem engraved on a rock by a soldier in the Italian Alpine.
