[:RU]Waterfall Serio[:]

[:RU]About Serio waterfall, I learned quite by accident when looking for interesting places in Lombardy, in which one would go within an hour or two from Milan. I was immediately intrigued by the information that these waterfalls are open only 5 times a year, with strictly within half an hour. «What nonsense,» — I thought — how can this be, that waterfall someone «discovers», and even a certain time «?

If you do not read Italian, you will find the waterfall is not so simple, it is desirable to focus on the village called Valbondione, and then Maslana (it’s true, not all navigators know). If you arrive during the «discovery» of the falls, there will be signs and specially trained people will show where to go and where to park.

Maslaiev from the waterfall to walk up the hill about 45 minutes, part of the road makes it climb, so you need comfortable shoes and clothes. We ran up in about 25-30 minutes because overslept and it took more time, so we were in a hurry, trying to do before closing. It was an interesting test of endurance =).

On the way we came across a herd of sheep:

At the top of the mountain, which is visible waterfall, we climbed exactly 10-30, when they have already closed, I was able to capture the recent strong jet. At this point I had decided that we should go back, for example, at night (2 times a year falls open at night), but then we went to Iceland, and the theme of waterfalls ceased to interest us in principle, I think, for a long time =).

The history of this waterfall is very interesting — once it was completely natural and fed by the waters of the surrounding mountains, where they, in turn, came from the glacier Trobe. Over time, the glacier melted, and in the early 20th century in those parts dam was built, and the water stopped coming.
