Like this it visits the macizo of Els Ports knowing this place in his group, with all his variety paisajística, natural and cultural, that is very rich and varied.

The travesía consists of five stages, being able to begin or finalise in any one of the five accommodations that work like  start-final of stage. Also it can realise in both senses of the course indistinctly.

The stages are quite long, around 20 Km by stage and with throw off balance of 1.000 m. By stage. So in general it is a travesía quite hard regarding length of the days.

On the other hand, the marcación of the stages leaves a lot that wish. It is necessary to be very attentive not to lose the correct way. Even in some points, appreciates like the marks have been manipulate on purpose for despistar to the mountaineer. We expect that it amend the before possible.
