Lèch dei Giai is a gem of intense cobalt set between Mount Alto at 2545 m. and the Crepe Rosse at 2360 m., in the Cime D’Auta chain.

It is a small and natural basin that occupies a hollow carved by an ancient glacier and barred to the north by a steep landslide from the eastern slopes.

The constantly uphill path continues from Franzei Valley towards Forcella Pianezze before which you turn right towards the lake.
