About Lago del Narèt

Lago del Narèt is a high mountain lake in Val Sambuco, Ticino. The interesting feature of this lake is that it is not a naturally arising mountain lake, but a reservoir, formed in 1970 by the construction of two dams around the area. Several mountain streams flow into this lake, which in turn join the River Maggia. It can be easily accessed through the various hiking trails nearby and also offers outstanding views of the Lago del Sambuco and the top section including the dam itself.
