It’s one of the Principality’s most alpine areas. You can find a number of glacial lakes, including Estany Negre, Estany Forcats and the Montmantell lakes, the latter being a main point of interest along this route.

It’s a tough route: although it’s not technically complicated, the last stretch involves overcoming a small ridge. It passes through a variety of different kinds of landscapes, allowing hikers to admire the magnificent Pla de l’Estany or the timeless Montmantell ponds. It ends with a spectacular panoramic view of the Pla de l’Estany Peak, located on the northern border.

The route starts at the Arinsal’s car park, where you will find the Valls de Comapedrosa Nature Park’s information point. (42º 34' 41.0232", 1º 28' 44.1798")

For your safety, we recommend you do the routes at altitudes of over 1,700 metres between the end of June and the end of September. However, if the weather and terrain conditions allow it, the season may extend from May to October.

You will find further details of this and other routes in the Hiking guide Trails of Andorra.
