Olria's pot

Olla de Núria: Located at  natural park of Capçaleres del Ter i Freser , near the town of Queralbs . When we talk about  the pot of Núria , we are talking about a large circus that extends west, north, northwest that surrounds the sanctuary of Núria bordering the Ripollès region with  the French High Cerdagne Valley.

When we talk about the pot of Núria we could say that it is a magical mountain, everyone sooner or later wants to make the pot of Núria, it should also be noted that the area of the valley of Núria
  has been a great cradle of Catalan mountaineering,

During the route we will make 19 peaks, all above 2700 meters, until we reach the highest point, which is in the Puigmal
  with its 2913 meters above sea level, in the colossus of the Ripollès region, it will surely not leave us indifferent. It is a high mountain trek and one of the most beautiful we can do in the Pyrenees , it is a route that if we are in good shape we can do it in one day, although it can be done in two days, highly recommended, already that sleeping at an altitude of more than 2500 meters is priceless, we could define this journey as the jewel in the crown,

That if to carry out this journey we must be in very good physical condition, either in one day or in two days. Núria's pot has a distance of 21.5 kms and a positive gradient of 1950 meters, to make this crossing we have to count from 10 to 12 hours.

We will leave the Sanctuary of Núria located at 1964 above sea level, towards the coma path of the funnel, immediately on the way it will start to rise, we will have to overcome some steep climbs that will immediately take us to the final shovel that leads to the Puigmal, this the views we will have will be unbeatable, once in the Puigmal, the highest point we will have to follow the ridge, always clockwise, linking all the peaks above 2700 meters to reach the new cross, from
  from there we will start descending again towards the sanctuary of Núria, passing by the nest peak of the aliga, the last peak we will make.


At the level of flora and fauna, this crossing has an unprecedented wealth.

Recommended time summer and autumn.
