this has a long walk downhill which is rocky and somewhat uncomfortable, but when you eventually reach the bottom of the track the view is breathtaking, its a stunning lake and well worth the trek and a lovely little suntrap, well worth it

If you are ever in Flims, don't miss a breathtaking walk around Lake Cresta. It is an amazing and quiet place. In summer or fall you can even enjoy a nice but really cold swim in the crystalclear water.
