    Great idyll, challenging hike from the Restonica Valley. If you still have some strength, follow the yellow square and climb up to the GR 20. You will be greeted with a sensational foresight westward and you can admire the Lac di Capitello from above in its full Bracht.

    Here it is much quieter, than at the approximately 200hm lower lying Lac de Melo. If you are looking for more peace and loneliness, the 200hm should still rise.

    After about an hour steep climb from the famous Lac de Melo, you reach the Lac de Capitello. It is the fourth largest and deepest lake in Corsica, nestled between the high peaks of the Restonica Valley

    The second mountain lake is worthwhile because of the even more impressive nature opposite the first mountain lake. A steep mountain flank extends right into the lake. Hard-boiled people treat themselves to a bath. A continuing hike to the GR20 would be possible from this point.

    Beautifully situated lake overlooking the Lac de Melo. Both lakes are particularly visible from the Brèche de Capitello. This can be reached via a steep, stony path.

    The lake is a very popular destination for Corsican robbers for good reason. Our children, then 8 and 9 years old, wanted to go from Lac de Melo to the next lake, Lac de Capitello. The mountain boots were worth it. There were a few places where we had to scramble

    Mid to late May, Lac de Melo was beautiful, Lac de Capitello the ascent demanding over snow fields, Lac de Goria then very dangerous over very steep snow fields and nonexistent paths.

    Very worthwhile destination, scenic anyway, but also something for bird lovers. When we were there, you could watch the jackdaws' flying skills in the strong gusts of wind.
