Orrido di Bellano, Bellano

#1 of 11 in Nature in Lake Como
Take in the sweet smell of fresh air and the calm of rushing water at Orrido di Bellano, a waterfall and gorge. This natural attraction is the result of water erosion that took place over 15 million years ago. Explore the gorge and waterfall via thin wooden platforms which lead to a lookout point with a spectacular view of the sparkling lake below. The narrow path travels through the rocky crevasses lined with ferns and shrubbery, and the fall's powerful force provides an awe-inspiring retreat in a very scenic spot.

  • The waterfall is beautiful but the entry fee is quite high for such a short walk. Watch out when parking on the free spots near the church. They are with limited time and you need to have a parking disk to correctly display the hour of arrival. We got a fine for not having such a disk in less than 15 minutes.
  • Very cool attraction and convenient walk from the ferry terminal. Don't expect a grandiose natural wonder, it's a waterfall. In the states this would qualify as a tourist trap, but if you're on vacation, take time to enjoy things.
