Part of 3 days "bm-backpacking" (out of 6) NE of Andorra, covering bm423-426.

From Refuge Mont-Roig, I follow the HRP-cairns in the direction of Noarra, descending along a stream.

When having arived at the stream Riu del Port, there's a dirt-road at the east-side which descends to the right to the hamlet of Noarra.

At that point I find a red/white waymarking to Port de Tavascan. It's -say - 500 meters climbing in 2 hours, first on the dirt-road, then on a mountain track.

This picture: on my way to the Port, looking back.

After passing a lake, there's the final climb to Port de Tavascan.

I return, again along the lake.

Having reached the dirt-road, the red/white waymarking follows a forest-trail to Noarra.

Noarra is a lovely hamlet.

I find this bivouac-spot beyond the village, close to the bridge over the stream.

The next day will be used to get beyond Refugio de Certascan to the lake of Laguna Romeda de Baix (or Estang de Romeda Baix).
