The lake of Poschiavo is a lovely spot in the Swiss mountains not far from the Italian border. There is a walk around the lake, approximately 8km in total along emerald waters, woods, small but well equipped grassy areas to relax.

All around the lake were mountain and dots of houses in white. The leaves of trees were green turning brown to yellow. Even the snow caps of mountain alps were visible at the distant background that adds beauty to the whole landscape. Very memorable.
