The route starts at the end of the road to Ransol (after the village of the same name), alongside the Borda Marticella, were we will leave our car. The path is marked with three yellow spots (commune route). It is of medium difficulty and is done in about 4 hours. Along our way we will pass Querol lake and depending on the season we will find Pyrenean lilies and narcissus, the typical snow plant of the country.

We can come back the same way, although if we have more time and want to do more we can carry on to the Cabana Sorda lake where there is a hut of the same name with space for up to 20 people.
