Coll de la Botella-Collada de Sanfons-Comapedrosa peak-Comapedrosa refuge-Comapedrosa communal Natural Park car park
Today we will head towards the highest point of Andorra. Pay attention to the slope that you will have to overcome. We will do a semi-circular route starting the hike at the Coll de la Botella, from where, passing through the collada de Sanfons, we will look for the "normal" route of the peak, the GR11. After having passed the Negre lake we will reach the highest point of the Principality, the Comapedrosa peak. If the weather is good, we can even see the Midi de Bigorre. The long descent will follow almost all the time the GR11 which, passing by the refuge, will take us to the Comapedrosa communal Natural Park car park.
