In top Wal d'Ega, in only 6 km from Nova Levante, is the emerald-green mountain lake Karezza. Because of its impressive flowers, in Latin it is called "Lec de Ergobando" (Iridescent lake). But its colors - not the only reason of this special name...
According to legends, once in the lake there was a mermaid with whom the wizard Masare has fallen in love. To tempt her, the witch Lanverda has advised him to dress up as the dealer in gemstones and to stretch a rainbow from Mount Katinachcho to Mount Latemar.
So he has also made, but has forgotten to change clothes. Because of it the mermaid has found him and has forever disappeared in the lake Karezza. The wizard has become angry and has thrown all parts of a rainbow and also a jewelry into waters. Therefore the lake has iridescent colors.
The lake Karezza eats underground sources, and his water level constantly changes. The highest level reaches in the spring, the lowest in October. In summer months the lake eats snow from mountains. If you want to relax - walk along the lake. Also, nearby there is a Carezza golf club - the golf course with 9 holes which is built in fine landscapes. In the winter, however, "The fantastic Dolomitic lake" freezes and becomes covered by snow that also very much impresses.
