The name of this place is a bit misleading, as instead of a lake there are streams and small ponds in this plain. However, there was actually a lake here some century ago, but after decades of floods its bed is now almost completely filled up with debris. Making this place as one of the highest swamp in the world I guess. The Pyramides Calcaires are a wonderful mountain formation at the top of the Val Veny in Valle d'Aosta, Italy, and are part of the Monte Bianco range. At the end of a day spent hiking at high altitudes, I was well rewarded with this glorious sunset while on my way back.
