Corsica, a mountain submerged in the Mediterranean Sea?

With its granite rocks, cut, shredded, which surrounds it with a light color palette of incredible richness!
From gray to orange-red or purple red porphyry, the shades are intense and punctuated here and there by golden beaches of fine sand. The landscape is changing, varied, rich in various scents and sensations.
The "a-peak" staggering its shores are followed by green meadows then scrub, ubiquitous, a mix between fragrant and dry shrubs and rocks which bring their explorers in a world of adventure, supported by all the legends and local histories.
Just climb towards the center of the island, and here again the scene changes!

The Restonica Valley
Near Corte, we find the Tagignano where the Restonica river flows that the hiker is encouraged to follow and admire.
Immense, dense, and fresh forests, where the rock, which is always present, outcrops, or stands to invite hikers to inaccessible climbing.
Continuing on its path, on craggy trails often without any safeguards mean,we can ear first the sound of water, then we see a raging river that runs down the flanks of the mountain. The river has made its way through the mountain by digging deep gorges through the granite, from the dawn of time.

Restonica, since it is its name, rises at 1711 meters of altitude in the Melo lake, in the Massif of Rotondo.
This river has not only widened the gorge, but it has also carved basins in rock, like natural pools, perfect for bathing or resting.
Above the forest, a new change of scenery!
Trees, green gorges give way to a bare and desert scenery, made of earth and rock.

The sweetness of the lower level is replaced by the cold mineral.

An exceptional panorama
However, the panorama that stretches before the eyes of the visitors who had the courage to go that far, is a reward for all their efforts. The view on the gorges is magnificent. Above the hikers, rises the ridge that surrounds the lake.
A final effort before reaching the Melo lake, whose deep blue waters in which the blue Mediterranean sky reflects, are a mirror to the surrounding rocky peaks, which some of them reach more than 2000 meters.

For the more courageous or fitted ones, or for the fans of heights, there is three quarters of an hour more to climb to Lake Capitello at 1930 meters.
The show is so awesome ... The peaks seem to plunge vertically, directly into the lake.

Corsica definitely deserves its name of Isle of Beauty.
