Lago Torrei is a mountain reservoir at an elevation of 874m (2,867ft) above the sea level, located in the Italian island of Sardinia.
The road to the lake, located within the Parco Nazionale del Golfo di Orosei e del Gennargentu, is 4.8 km long. It’s certainly breathtaking and it has a fearsome reputation. The surface of the road is asphalt, but pretty narrow. Drive with care as this is a mountain road with hairpin curves and dangerous dropoffs, bordered by a drop of hundreds of meters (many hundreds of feet) unprotected by guardrails.
