In Encamp, the carnival is one of the most festive times of the year. Satire and fun fill the streets for a fun-filled festival.
The Riu dels Orris Hut is next to el Pla de l’Ingla, on the right of the Madriu river in the parish of Escaldes-Engordany.
It has 6 places. The Riu dels Orris Hut is at an altitude of 2,230 metres and was opened in 1981. This is a stone hut not guarded which is open all year, but it is usually maintained in the summer months (cleaning, firewood, first aid kits...). It has bunks and fireplace. There is water alongside the hut. You can get there by car to Engolasters. Then you have to go on foot along the Coll Jovell, following Fontverd and the Plà de l'Ingla. There is also the possibility of going by car along the la Comella road to la Borda del sabater and from here on foot along the Camí de Ramio, to the Pla de l’Ingla. The route is about 3 ½ hours and has a climb of 980 – 1,000 metres, depending on the route chosen. Both routes are easy and there is a mobile phone signal in the area of the hut.
