A real challenge, which becomes easier to bear looking up
to take in the view of Andorras highest mountain, Comapedrosa
The fourth stage starts at the Borda de Sorteny Refuge and continues towards the towns of El Serrat and then Llorts. On the way you’ll pass by Camí Ral and Les Salines, where you’ll find the trout centre that supplies the Principality of Andorra. Get ready as there’s a fairly steep ascent to Clot del Cavall soon after, and within walking distance of the Comapedrosa Valleys Nature Park. It’s an intense climb that is thankfully short. You’ll also cross the shelter and lake in Angonella.
From there, you’ll enter the parish of La Massana, a region where mountain landscapes abound. You’ll have to be patient but you’ll gradually discover them for yourself. At this point, go down to the shelters in Les Fonts and Pla de l’Estany, leaving behind Font Podrida hill.
