The Coma Pedrosa is the highest peak around the Principality of Andorra. It is located in the western part of the country, close to the ski resort of Arinsal and its height is 2,942 m. As the highest peak in Andorra are good signs in all the way, paint marks or piles of stones, but what will help us be the path itself, which from the beginning and to the very top, is marked even in areas where it runs only on rock.
The Coma Pedrosa is a great viewpoint of the Pyrenees and the Principality, and from its top we can see the Carlit area Soldeu-El Tarter and Grau Roig, Andorra la Vella, Arinsal, the ski resort of Pal ( their tracks are very distinct from the forest that surrounds them), Massif Maladeta (always covered with snow on the slope we see), and very close to us Vall Ferrera and Pica d'Estats, among countlessnumerous peaks that make all the effort was worth it.

Distance: 15 Km. 1.400 m. - 1.400 m. Time: 6 h.
From Andorra's Arinsal, we traverse to the bifurcation & oacute; n that leads to the station & oacute; n & iacute ;.-run Crossing the t & uacute; nel there and turn right just off & eacute; ste. Here we leave the car in a barrier meth & aacute; lica which forbid & iacute; be the way to veh & iacute;.
Shortly after starting our journey, we enter the forest. We will see some brands of paint in various colors gu & iacute; n & oacute the ascension; n; always follow the yellow, are dots or stripes, and to be & aacute; n enormously helpful if the road is & aacute; very well marked.
After 20 minutes or so we came to a sign (1,700 m), which indicates the way to Coma Pedrosa leaves left. We left the track to take this path. Soon we found a fairly new bridge over the r & iacute;. Or Pla l'Estany
Following the road and shortly after & eacute; s, we findanother SMALL or bridge that allowed us & aacute; cross the r & iacute; o de Coma Pedrosa and be & aacute; the beginning of the first great difficulty, since from here & iacute; The climb is steep and winding. This climb is long and reach a LITTLE break or when the R & iacute; o comes right up to the road, a few meters to the right of our path.
The road follows a LITTLE bit or no slope, until we again cross the SMALL or r & iacute; o. AFTER & eacute; s back to gain distance with another steep but much m & aacute; s short to reach without m & aacute; s difficulties Collet de Coma Pedrosa, where we found a poster (2,226 m).
From here & iacute; We can see the huge MOUNTAIN remains for us to climb. Just behind & aacute; s ours, a little hidden and m & aacute; s top can see the Refuge Coma Pedrosa.
We will follow the path that now makes it a littledown to reach the valley floor. We are in the highlands of Coma Pedrosa, makes us walk in direction & oacute; n west. On the right we see a LITTLE to caba & ntilde;. A shepherd
Following the way we approach a new steep slope. The road gets a little rocky due to the slope but still very consistent and presents no difficulty.
The road crosses a little while to the right margin and continues with constant slope and direction & oacute; n until shortly markedly changed direction & oacute; n to the northeast. We are then in the Canyorques (2,500 m). We have now left the area for a bit of pie and the terrain is much m & aacute;. S grassy slope but no reduction
We have gained much height. Now the shelter is much m & aacute; s low, and we can see the Lake of them Truites, near & eacute; l which was previously hidden.
Following the pathgot a SMALL or lake that surround the right. From here & iacute; and we can see the peak of Coma Pedrosa.
Continuing the road a bit we discovered the great lake of the ravine: Estany Negre, a fairly large crystal blue water lake (2,600 m). Now we follow the path along the lake to catch another thing left right and we can continue with its yellow markings; as & iacute; we saved the hike in the pie plate steep left in the western part of the Coma Pedrosa.
We started to gain height r & aacute; rapidly along the road that runs whenever m & aacute; s for rock until we catch the address & oacute; n crest that reaches the top. Now s & oacute; you have to keep topping up the four ridges that separate us and following the yellow marks.
Once on top of Coma Pedrosa, chaired by a meth & aacute stick; lico on a large block of cement, coulde have to enjoy the views. Tambi & eacute; n can see the large gap made, pudien
