Hiking: collada de la maiana

It is virtually circular through exceptional natural and cultural surroundings.

The route starts with a cobbled path that climbs the lower part of the Madriu Valley and takes us to the Bordes d’Entremesaigües complex. Then we take the path to the right and cross the river Madriu. We follow the GR11 until the Perafita plain and the hut of the same name. If we want, from here we can make a small round trip to the La Nou Lake, 1 km south of this place.

Otherwise we will follow the GRP to the La Maiana pass and start to go down through forests, alpine plains and rivers to the l’Estall Serrer hut, following the GRs westwards to the Fontverd mountain hut. From here we will follow the GR towards les Borges de Ràmio i d’Entremesaigües.

The start of the route is at km 1 on the road to la Plana, in the parish of Escaldes-Engordany (42° 30' 15",01° 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.
