trail n° 4473 : hike, in Espagne
.:. Catalonia - Heaven’s gate - Vallferrera shelter to Tavascan via the Baborte shelter
This is the longest and toughest stage of all. The path passes the beautiful Baborte lagoons, climbs to the Roca Cigalera (2,667 m) and follows the crest to later flank the Boldís Mountains and once it reaches the GR 11 it continues as far as Tavascan.
For those who are less competitive, there are two more comfortable options:
- You can do a shorter, but still very interesting stage, going down to the Plans de Boavi through the Sellente Valley and from here take the trail as far as Tavascan, taking 8 hours to arrive.
- If you are really tired you may wish to split the stage into two following the GR 11, first stage as far as the town of Àreu and the next stage from here to Tavascan, although this stage takes sections of trail that are far less spectacular...
