Andorra la Vella and Escaldes-Engordany celebrate Carnival together, with a parade and troupe contest that attracts large crowds looking for fun.
The Entremesaigües route is in the Vall del Madriu-Perafita-Claror, declared UNESCO Heritage of Mankind.
It is 4Km long and takes little more than 1.30 hours. Medium difficulty.
The Entremesaigües route starts some 100 metres above the start of the road to la Plana from the Engolasters road (there is a signpost). We will follow a cobbled path marked with yellow spots into the forest to Boïgot spring, which is opposite a mountain ‘borda’. At this point, the path levels out and leaves the forest, crossing the River Claror i Perafita on a small ledge. We will connect with the descending GR 11 to the Bordes and bridge of Entremesaigües, the end of our excursion.
On the way back, we will follow the GR 7 to the left, the cobbled path of the Madriu, until we come to Sessenat bridge and the road where we have parked the car.
Starting point: Carretera de la Plana (42° 30' 15",1° 33' 3").
For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1700 metres between the end of June and the end of September.
You will find further details of this and other routes in the Hiking guide Trails of Andorra.
