Vall d'Incles - Portella Blanca (bm427)

previous stage   next stage

Only the bordermarkers on this stage are shown (and some adjoining ones). The main route is red, the variants have other colors. Click here for an fullscreen interactive map.

In short

After 2 days of crossing  Andorra without seeing any bordermarker, you will today finally reach the next one: bm427 at the Portella Blanca. Starting from the hamlet of Incles, you will find your way southwards, passing Pas de la Casa where you can experience a submersion into the world of taxfree-shopping. And then it's 2-3 hours to Portella Blanca d'Andorra.

Considerations
In general well-waymarked or easy to navigate. Water is however scarce in the central 'high ridges' part. Those high ridges can be very windy, be careful in bad weather. In the first part and near Portella Blanca enough spots for a bivouac.

- the main route is a smooth trail along the border and most of the bordermarkers (within 100m reach of the main route)
- the variants allow you to visit the remaining bordermarkers
- altitudes are derived with Gpsvisualisizer using NASA SRTM1-data
- km & elevations according to Basecamp
- time according to
Naismith's rule with average speed 4km/h; 10 min. extra for every 100m ascent and 5 min. extra for every 100m descent. Don't forget: this is a rough estimation.
- (+ or -) = extra km & elevation & time compared to continuing on the main route)
