Route Description

Path to Aigualluts
Waterfall of Aigualluts

You will begin the route in La Besurta (1920m), next to the people who walk in direction to the Aneto crossing the river. In a few of minutes you will arrive at the signal that indicates Refugio de Renclusa to the right and Aigualluts to the left. You will turn in direction to Forau d’Aigualluts following the path well marked in the forest and the grass until descending to a great plateau. In the final of plateau is the beautiful place of Forau d’Aigualluts where's the river Garonne's born from glacier of Aneto rising from a hole with some nice waterfalls.

You'll follow the cairns in a new plateau in direction to left. You'll see two valleys in front of us, both sides of peak Aigualluts, the right side is the access to Barrancs, approach to Col of Salenques, but you'll walk to left where's the entry to Mulleres. After some zig zag among the rocks you'll arrive to a small lake (2210m). The path go in left side to Lac Coth deth Horo, but you'll go to right without path in direction to a great col. After a long ramp you'll arrive to this visible col where's the Lake. In the lake of Escaleta (2445m) you'll turn to right near the river to a big lake, it's the Lago Superior de la Escaleta (2630m) and you'll turn to left side to walk the long ramp to the great shoulder of Tuc de Mulleres. The ramp is long but is the only obstacle to conquer the peak and with patience you'll reach the long shoulder and you'll walk to right without problems to the summit.
