Itinerary description

This hiking route takes place in the valley Circ de Pessons. This valley has a lot of morains which left several lakes. The valley is surrounded by mountains at three sides.
The route starts at a big parking place at Grau Roig, a short distance from Soldeau eastwards.
In the winter Grau Roig is a good Ski Resort.
There are so many lakes that it is quite difficult to put them correctly on the route map. Be a little aware of that when you look at the pictures.
The lakes are connected in three lines down the valley.

This is a good place to have our packed lunches if you don't reach the top. As everywhere in the valley we can see the red Rhododendron flowers among stones.

Return Point

This is a natural point to return by if the weather is to bad with fog f.ex. The path further up to Pic dels Pessons starts after some rocky area. It is not difficult. The path goes crisscross up to the plateau as can be easily seen on the Goggle Earth Photo.
