Climb Description

Llac d'Engolasters is a short and fairly steep climb to a mountain lake in the center of Andorra. It is an enjoyable climb for riding with some nice views down to the valley in places, althoguh much of the ascent is in trees.

From the lake itself you can continue on a light gravel trail (which is rideable on a road bike - they even did it in the Vuelta a few years ago!). This is a beautiful flat route which comes out at the near the bottom of the climb up to Els Cortals d'Encamp.

The climb is open throughout the year.
