Located just below Mount Paganella, the Lamar lakes, once joined together, were separated by a landslide that gave rise to two distinct basins: Lake Santo to the south and Lake Lamar to the north. The latter is a very transparent body of water surrounded by woods and iridescent rocks, with a wide grassy beach on the western side. Its green waters are a tourist destination and a place of relaxation. Both lakes are subject to karst phenomena, just like Lake Terlago, just a couple of kilometers downstream.

The particular beauty and the varied fish fauna that characterize these lakes, inserted in the vast beech forests of this side of the Paganella, make them extremely interesting both among naturalists and fishermen. The area of the two lakes is also a starting point for suggestive itineraries that wind up to the top of the Paganella.
