The largest lake in Catalonia

The Lake of Certascan or Sertascan is a lake of glacial origin, located at an altitude of 2,236 m, at the head of the Cardós valley (Pallars Sobirà), to the east of the Certascan peak (2,853 m high). Its drainage gives rise to the Certascan river that dies in the Lladorre river. Currently the lake is repressive for the hydroelectric use of the lake through an underground channel of conduction of the water to the central one of Tavascan. It is the largest lake in the Catalan Pyrenees and also one of the deepest.
This lake is the largest of the Pyrenees and is in a magnificent setting. During the ascent we will be able to contemplate the Pica de Estats (the highest point of Catalunya 3173) and with luck, to meet with groups of isards. We start the route following a section of the track that leads from Tavascan to Boavi. After 1 km we reach the pla de la borda where we will follow the GR marks that leave the track and begin the ascent in the north direction. The road is very well marked but does not match the one that appears in the alpine map. After about 50 minutes along the trail and after passing through the Pleta of the Tornapigol we cross the track that goes to the Romedo. We continue along the path that leads us to the lake at 1:30. This last section is done on snow (May) so it can probably be done in 1 hour during the summer.
