So busy,even with 5 euro flat fee for the car park, there was no where to park. Have been here before and this is a pleasant lake to walk round but this time we abandoned the visit. Shame.

Loved this hike . We spent 4 hours out here hiking several trails. The trails were full of people enjoying fall colors of the Pyrenees. The trails were good surface. We saw people running biking and hiking trails.

Ideal to go with children, to run or jog any time of the day (according to weather conditions). There is also a restaurant at the beginning of the lake, but the price is expensive, and a couple of places to rest along the path.

Enjoyed the trail. Poorly marked trail on the descent made me lose my way in which became vertical! Instead of 20 minutes to Encamp it took nearly 2 hours. Plus a wait for a bus from Encamp back to Andorra LaVella. Next time I will...More
