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.

Orrido di Bellano reviews
Travelled from bellagio and paid to get in to see hardly nothing, walk took 5 mins and not even fully finished. Building work still going on. Disappointed they are charging when it’s not finished more »
I was there but unfortunately one tree fall down and we saw just part of it and paid 3 Euro. It was ok more »
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.
This waterfall natural park is both accessible and surprisingly beautiful. It has elements of several generations of the hydro industrial design naturally combined with an astonishing geological landscape. I personally liked the big green tube most of all (joking, although it is cute). An old aqueduct is nice and gives a comforting feel of something built to last. And the waterfall(s), they are beautiful, fizzy and sparkling - what else would you want from a waterfall. A must see place in Bellano and in Como lake region.
