Excursion to Pic Carlit

Excursion to Pic Carlit

The Carlit is the highest mountain in the Cerdanya zone and the Eastern Pyrenees and is part of a mountainous area surrounded by lakes and lush vegetation. It is a route of 15 kilometers and a difference in altitude of 900 metres, where there is only one climb at the end.
It is considered a route of low difficulty during the spring, summer and autumn (during the winter it is a harder excursion because of the snow and the temperature). The duration is approximately 4 hours and 45 minutes, starting the route from the parking lot of the Bollosa lake.
The summit of Carlit, located at 2,921 meters, allows us to enjoy magnificent views of the mountainous profile that goes from the Canigó to the central Pyrenees. Its slopes have the second highest concentration of glacial lakes in the whole Pyrenean mountain range (only surpassed by the Parc Nacional d'Aigüestortes).
