The Pragser Wildsee, or Lake Prags, Lake Braies (Italian: Lago di Braies; German: Pragser Wildsee) is a lake in the Prags Dolomites in South Tyrol, Italy. It belongs to the municipality of Prags which is located in the Prags Valley.During World War II it was the destination of the transport of concentration camp inmates to Tyrol. In recent years, the lake earn the nickname of "Pearl of the Alps" due to its increasing popularity among tourists.The lake lies at the foot of the imposing rock face of the Seekofel (Italian Croda del Becco, Ladin Sass dla Porta 2,810 m) and is located within the Fanes - Sennes - Prags nature park. It has an extension of about 31 hectares with a length of 1.2 km and a width of 300-400 meters. It is one of the deepest lakes in the autonomous province of Bolzano, with a maximum depth of 36 meters and an average depth of 17. The lake is a tourist destination, which attracts visitors for the blue / emerald green color of its clear waters and for the natural scenery in which it is immersed. In fact, the lake is surrounded on three sides by Dolomite peaks, including the Seekofel. The lake is the starting point of the Alta via n. 1 of the Dolomites called "The classic" which reaches Belluno at the foot of the Schiara Group.To visit the lake, it must be approached from the north side. To reach the lake, you need to reach the Prags Valley between the villages of Welsberg and Niederdorf in Puster Valley. After traveling a few kilometers, you will come across the only crossroads and take the road towards the lake. After passing the villages of Schmieden and St. Veit, you arrive at the car park (to pay in the tourist season), where there is a large hotel-restaurant, the Hotel Pragser Wildsee linked to the pioneering figure of Emma Hellenstainer. It is possible to take a tour around the banks of the lake. This route is flat and wide on the west bank, while on the east bank it is steep and narrow, with some stairways. Despite this, the beautiful walk that leads to the foot of the Seekofel can be tackled by any hiker. During the winter period these paths (especially the one on the eastern shore) are often closed, due to the danger of avalanches. It is however possible to make an excursion around the lake, since its surface is solidly frozen.In recent years, thanks to popularity of the Italian TV series Un passo dal cielo, the Pragser Wildsee became one of the most visited places of the region Trentino-South Tyrol as it started attracting the attention of countless travel bloggers and professional photographers.[2] The large inflow of tourism brought local administrators to think of ways to reduce the number of visits to preserve the mountain-lake ecosystem.(Wiki)
