Pic Carlit Pyrenees

In the heart of the Catalan Pyrenees Regional Park

Carlit_main_page

In the eastern Pyrenees, not far from Andorra, lies the Carlit Massif and the Catalan Pyrenees Regional Park. It is a granite massif, filled with plenty of small lakes, making for very pretty scenery. The refuges are not all guarded and are often situated on the edge of the forest. This is an area of the Pyrenees worthy of discovery.
