The large vast glacial lakes of Tailli at 2755 m is one of the most mystical places of the Val d’Otro. Well beyond the limit of vegetation,  it is a succession of meadows and rocks, small ravines and soft valleys that surround two high altitude lakes often iced over which reflect the surrounding peaks. Buttercups, gentianellas, anemones and saltwort grow as far as the eye can see between the sparse grasses and mosses where it is not unusual to see ibex and chamois.

The climb to the Tailli lakes (3.5 hours) follows the initial part of  trail no.3. Hiking for about half an hour, after a clear fork in the path near a clearing with benches enclosed by a wooden railing, you take trail no.3 towards Gender. At the height of the first house in Gender the trail becomes steeper and at times exposed and then climbs up to the refuge Alpe Tailli, beyond which it becomes easier and takes around 40 minutes to reach the lakes.
