Very nice view from the dam. Also there is bungee jumping opportunity. But if you are here, you should check Lavertezzo and Sonogno too, and search for the beautiful waterfalls!

One of the highest dams in Europe. Must stop on the way to the Verzascatal 10 minutes away. Bungee jumping offer for adrenalin fans!
