PALLARS SOBIRÀ / PN de l'Alt Pirineu
THE EXPERIENCE An essential itinerary for all those who want to see the eastern sector of the National Park in all its magnitude. An essential itinerary for all those who want to see the eastern sector of the National Park in all its magnitude.

It has an impressive collection of high mountain lakes, including the Estany Negre (Black Lake), the deepest in the park. Near the lake is the Josep Maria Blanc Refuge, set in bucolic mountain surroundings on the shore of Tort de Peguera Lake, from where there is easier access to the upper part of the valley, which is occupied by a rosary of small lakes.

The route begins at the village of Espot, from where you take the GR that follows the road of the ski slopes as far as the Peguera Valley. From there the path follows the left bank of the gully and climbs up the valley to the Lladres Dam, after which it follows the track that climbs to Tort de Peguera Lake, the eastern shore of which you skirt until, after about 10 minutes, you reach the Josep Maria Blanc Refuge. The track ends at the Black Lake.

It has 60 places equipped with mattresses and blankets for overnight stays, as well as toilets and hot showers.

Farther up, following the GR and the Chariots of Fire route, you come to another horizontal shelf in the upper Peguera valley where there are three lakes: Llastra, Cabana and Coveta. From there you can continue to the Saburó col and the Colomina refuge in the Fosca Valley or to Monestero Col, from where you can make your way back through that valley.
