What could be more beautiful than to find an oasis of water, surrounded by nature, right there at your fingertips? Let yourself be tempted by the small lakes at the top of Piz La Ila and Piz Sorega, with their Kneipp paths, little waterfalls and water jets, wooden channels with dams that can be opened and closed however you want for some good clean fun.
What is a Kneipp path?
A Kneipp path is a relatively new spa treatment invented by the German priest Sebastian Kneipp (1821-97). Sebastian Kneipp studied the therapeutic properties of water, he tried some practices on himself and was able to recover from tuberculosis through daily dives into the icy Danube. The Kneipp Path is based on hydrotherapy and uses the healing power of water to bring well-being to the whole body, improve blood circulation and stimulates the nervous system and skin. It consists of immersing the feet up to the ankles or knees and walking along a path made of alternating hot and cold water, usually on surfaces of different materials (sand, stones, tiles etc.).
The Kneipp method also involved immersing yourself in hot and cold baths or even in rivers or natural lakes.
In the Piz La Ila and Piz Sorega Movimënt parks these paths are made of pebbles and sand, soak your tired feet in the cool and natural Dolomite water and you'll immediately feel fantastic.
