Overview

This mountain hut is located in Circ de Colomers, close to Lac Major de Colomers, one of the bigest lakes in the area. Circ de Colomers is a picturesque and rugged region of Val d'Aran, moulded by the action of ancient glaciers, full of lakes and surrounded by hilly peaks. Because of its natural interest it is part of the Parc Nacional d'Aigües Tortes i Estany de Sant Maurici protected area.

Getting There

Go to Salardú, in Val d'Aran, and from there take the road going to Banhs de Tredòs via Vall d'Aiguamoix.

  • In winter the road is not normally opened farther away than the parking area behind Eth Cerèr of Montadí Restaurant. From here to the hut there are about 4 hours walking (skies or snowshoes mandatory).

  • From the 1st of July to the September 30th, the car has to be left in the parking area of Banhs de Tredòs. From there to the hut there is a hike of about 2 hours. There is also the alternative of using a Taxi service that, by following a forestal track, will approach you much closer to the hut.

  • The rest of the year the forestal track is open and particular cars can approach to the hut by themselves.
