Coll Meianell al Puig Cerverís

Description

Small watchtower of the Natural Park

The start of the route is at Coll de Meianell where we leave our cars. Access to the road that goes from Tregurà to Ribesaltes, the Fontlletera Path. We climb from Ribesaltes, the track is recommended for 4x4, but normal cars, with great care, can access it too.
From the Meianell pass, where we parked, we will see the altitudinal limit of the black pine forest. We can see, as if it were with leaflets, where the forest ends and the alpine meadow begins. We pave the way along a metal barrier and we only have to follow the track and enjoy the landscape.
We start surrounded by tall meadows, used to feed mares and cows. Little by little we will observe more and more flora (especially during the spring and summer), and already start the slope of the Puig Cerverís we will see over us, stains of small black pine forests. Very small and scattered trees indicate the harsh climatic conditions that we can find in this area.
Arriving at the Placondal of the Serra de la Canya, we turn left along a vertical side until reaching the summit of Puig Cerverís at 2,206m. From here we have to the north the southern part of Núria's valley, with Totlomón's rocks; the Puigmal, and the towns of Serrat and Queralbs to the northwest. To the southeast we will see the Sierra Cavallera in the foreground, with the Taga standing out as the highest peak.

We can enjoy a good time with the views and, quite probably, birds that will fly over us like vultures, cornets, kestrels and, if we are lucky, some golden eagle or bearded vulture. We begin the descent, without hastle, admiring the landscape that surrounds us. Continuing the sheperd path we will arrive again at Coll Dalt de Meianell.
