The following stop is Careno, a small village accessible only on foot with typical stone houses and two churches: the Romanesque San Martino and the 7th century Parish "dell'Assunta".

Just ahead on the same shore is Nesso.
A center formed by an agglomerate of dwellings, it is well-known for its "orrido"; the rocky gorge into which the waters from the Nos Valley, descending from the Tivano plane, flow into a waterfall.
This vision is made all the more evocative by a Roman bridge which crosses the ravine. In Nesso, characteristic houses line the stepped paths which descends to the lake and re-ascend to the ruins of the castle destroyed by Francesco II Sforza in 1531.
Thanks to a scenic path which begins in Nesso, it is possible to reach the spacious valley of the Tivano plane and the Monte San Primo (at 1685 meters). Towards Argegno, the boat passes over the deepest part of the lake which descend to 414 meters. Here during the Fifties, professor Auguste Piccard tested his bathyscaphs.
