El Planell d’Encodina viewpoint


From this viewpoint, you can see the stockbreeding activity of Andorra, which along with the agriculture, was the principal base of the country's economy until the 20th century. Although this activity has diminished, you can still see cows, sheep, horses and goats.

Another interesting point of this viewpoint is the hazel, which grows on damp lands at altitudes of between 1,300 and 1,700 metres. In its herbaceous undergrowth, there are two types of contradictory herbs: one is liverwort, which is used for medicinal purposes, and the other is the stinking hellebore, which is very dangerous because of its toxicity. 

You will find more information about this and other guided walking routes in the Andorra Mountain Guide.
