This hiking route starts by crossing the subalpine meadows and wetlands of orchids before reaching Estanyó Lake.
If we go on to the peak, we fins examples of such exceptional flora as water-crowfoot from glaciers and saxifraga.
During the excursion we will hear the song of the blue tits and be able to see the crossbill with its characteristic beak.
