Pica of States

Pica d'Estats: Located in the sovereign Pallars, within the Alt Pirineu Natural Park, when we talk about the Pica d'Estats, we are talking about the highest peak in Catalonia with its 3143 meters high, we could say that it is in the The most emblematic peak in Catalonia, as it is at the highest point, The ascent to the state basin, we can do it from two places, by vallferrera (Catalonia.) or by pine (France.) Both itineraries are incredible, and it certainly won't leave you indifferent. To do this route you must be well prepared physically, as we have to do many kilometers and with a large accumulated difference in altitude, during this route we will do at least three thousand. With the option of making a fourth treble, the tip of Gabarró. This is an alpine and demanding route where we will progress through the incredible alpine meadows offered by this area, which will surely be unforgettable. technical area has no complications, depending on the snowfall, we must use crampons and ice ax, a route we can do all year round, but if we decide to do it in winter we must know that it will be harder and more demanding , only suitable for people with some baggage in the mountains, during the itinerary we will pass through incredible areas. Like the lake of sotllo 'lake of pica of states and of the neck of sotllo, that surely will not leave you equal, during the route, we will learn curiosities of the zone, like its history, a little of flora and fauna and we will learn to differentiate plants and trees, with a little luck we will be able to identify animals and footprints, just as we will also learn the formation of ponds. Apart from the emblematic state peak we will make other peaks such as Verdaguer peak 3133 m, Gabarró peak 3114) optional ascent) Montcalm peak 3077 meters. It should be noted that apart from being a great day, it is a day that we can not ask for more.
