Different popular “castanyades” are held in Andorra for All Saints.
This is a very appealing route that begins at the Grau Roig ski resort.
The ascent is gradual to start with, but soon takes on an alpine character as you reach the foothills of the Pic del Àliga.
A canal (approx. 100 metres altitude difference) with a gradient of almost 40º takes you closer to the summit. Next follow the crest of the Gargantillar to the Coll de Pessons pass, at which point you will start to descend. The downward route can also be used as an upward route (easier).
Follow the CG-2 towards the Port d’Envalira mountain pass. Shortly after the Envalira tunnel roundabout, turn right towards the Grau Roig ski resort (CS-280). Once at the resort car park, keep to the right and leave the main parking site behind to get out at El Cubil car park. The route begins to the left of the car park access bridge (wooden sign).
