Cows grazing in the meadows.

DSC00738 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We left behind a first detour that would take us back to Sort and, a little further on, we found the detour of Montardit, where we will return in a few minutes,

DSC00740 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
after visiting the picturesque village of Enviny (1: 10h - 1,150m).

DSC00748 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Church of Enviny.

DSC00759 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We undo the road to the detour of Montardit and we take it.

DSC00757 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Going down to Montardit de Dalt.

DSC00760 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We begin to lose altitude, first in direction O and then in direction S, by a path that advances between fields of culture and walls of dry stone.

DSC00763 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We passed just above a farm

DSC00764 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we end up on the road, which we cross.

DSC00765 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We enter the nucleus of Montardit de Dalt (1: 30h - 945m)

DSC00769 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG

DSC00773 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We go through a covered alley that forks: we continue on the left

DSC00774 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
in the direction of La Mola - Estac.

DSC00781 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We are going down a path covered with grass,

DSC00782 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
we leave behind the detour of La Mola and continue on,

DSC00783 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
in the direction of the village of Estac.

DSC00787 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We pass by a small channel that leads us to the bottom of the ravine of Montardit, which we must cross at ford.

DSC00789 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Attention: in the thawing season or after the rain it can be difficult to cross it.

DSC00803 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
After crossing the stream,

DSC00804 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
the road returns to gain height

DSC00808 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
through the interior of the holm oak of La Caella.

DSC00809 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Little by little, as we go flanking the mountain, the forest is becoming more open and sparse,

DSC00807 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
which allows us to enjoy good views of the nucleus of Montardit de Dalt.

DSC00814 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We arrive at an area of more sandy ground and to a point where we have to go up a rocky ledge upwards (in SW direction)

DSC00815 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
leaving to our right the meadows and the farmhouse of Santa Creu.

DSC00816 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Farmhouse of Santa Creu and the mountain of Llarvén.

DSC00821 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We reached the top of the mountain

DSC00822 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we found a vertical indicator signal.

DSC00824 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea(1).JPG
We turn left

DSC00830 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we continue flanking the mountain in an S direction through the sparse Holm-oak forest.

DSC00838 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We find a hollow where there is a nice red pine forest

DSC00839 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and then we recover the holm oak


DSC00840 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We now approach a section where the itinerary flanks the slope towards the south until reaching a point, just when the road is oriented towards the west, that the views open towards the town of Arcalís and, more to the S, we can distinguish the silhouette of the Punxeguda Rock, the Arboló gorge and the Geganta Adormida

DSC00841 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
The Geganta Adormida.

DSC00848 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We are going very gently up this panoramic stretch and we reach a point where we already spotted the Estac nucleus.

DSC00852 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We now descend through a quite stony area where our path can be confused with the roads trodden by flocks of sheep. We arrive at a dirt track, which we follow to the right, and cross a small ravine.

DSC00854 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Next, we leave the track

DSC00855 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we follow the signposted path advancing between walls of dry stone.

DSC00857 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Just before reaching Estac, we connect with an asphalted road

DSC00863 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
we leave a sheep farm on the left

DSC00867 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we went down a few meters

DSC00871 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
towards the Davall fountain, we are right at the entrance of Estac (3: 10h - 1.170m).

DSC00873 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We crossed Estac,

DSC00875 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
leaving the church of Sant Marçal on our right,

DSC00877 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and continue in direction O.

DSC00878 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Right at the exit of the village we find the indications of Mencui and Balestui, where we will go next.

DSC00880 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We move through an open area,

DSC00885 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
between hedges and grass meadows,

DSC00891 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
paying attention to the road, which in this stretch can be loser.
We must surround some meadow since the original road has been engrossed and is not passable.

DSC00886 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We go down gently, trying to follow the worn marks of yellow paint,

DSC00888 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
for a losing area and with quite embedded paths.

DSC00889 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We crossed a ravine and continued to lose height between meadows and small clusters of trees.

DSC00891 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea(1).JPG
We descend to a meadow, we cross it down

DSC00892 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea(1).JPG
and we connect with a path that advances between dry stone walls,

DSC00894 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
rather more well defined

DSC00896 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and that goes into a forest of oaks.

DSC00898 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We flank the slope, with quite a slope and a reddish soil.

DSC00899 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We are getting closer to

DSC00902 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea(1).JPG
ravine of the Font del Llop.

DSC00904 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We come to a fork

DSC00905 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
where we find a yellow arrow that indicates the path that goes down,
Attention !: we ignore the arrow

DSC00906 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we continue the route by the road above, which is also marked with yellow paint marks.

DSC00908 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We crossed two torrents, the first one above a waterfall.

DSC00907 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
After having overcome the second torrent, just when it seems that the path is lost and before a detachment, we suddenly climb a blurred path that becomes more evident above.

DSC00915 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We ascend in loops through the interior of an oak grove until we reach a meadow.

DSC00914 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Here we turn left and continue gaining height until we find a vertical sign of Tourism of Catalonia.

DSC00916 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Shepherd shelter on the way to Mencui.

We link with a more defined path and turn left. We continue climbing, now with less slope, through an oak forest that gradually opens up. We reach a small hill and turn towards the O.

DSC00919 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We continue approaching Mencui by a path that advances between dry stone walls. But little by little the road becomes engorged and we reach a point where we have to go down to the track that is right below us.

DSC00924 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We continue this way up and, after a couple of turns, we find a detour that is where we would have gone if the road had been cleaner and passable.

DSC00926 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
The abandonment of livestock and the depopulation of these villages of Pallars is gradually losing the valuable heritage of roads in these lands.

DSC00927 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We continue along the track and soon we arrive at the half-abandoned houses of the Mencui core (4: 50h - 1,261m).

DSC00929 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
From Mencui the signposted path would take us directly to the Cossant farmhouse. But at the moment of documenting this guide, this path is impractical due to a great detachment. Therefore, to get to the farmhouse of Cossant it is necessary to follow an alternative itinerary approaching Escós and Tolzó

DSC00932 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
So, we discard the direct path to the farmhouse of Cossant and down the same track where we have climbed previously and continue in the direction of Escós.

DSC00945 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We went through the Pubill farmhouse and, after crossing two ravines, we reached the crossing of Escós (5: 35h - 940m).

DSC00959 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Here we leave the track that continues down to Escós - Baro

DSC00968 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and continue along the track on the right towards the forest of Tolzó.

DSC00971  senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
The track is gaining height doing loops through a beautiful forest of red pine.

DSC00977 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We continue along this road without changing the road, leaving behind detours on both sides, until we reach the farmhouse of Cossant (6: 55h - 1,339m).

DSC00982 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Boixerola.

DSC00988 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We are at the highest point of the entire route and, thanks to its height, we can enjoy good views of the mountains of the High Pyrenees: the Torre del Orri (2.439m), the Pica d'Estats (3.143m) and the Massif of Montcalm, ...

DSC00989 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Views of the Pica d'Estats from the farmhouse of Cossant.

DSC00995 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We leave the track

DSC00996 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we recover the marked path,

DSC00998 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
which goes under the remains of the farmhouse.

DSC01000 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
The path descends on the back in the S direction and we pass another ruined farmhouse.

DSC01004 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We continue in the same direction until we turn to the left and begin to descend bordering the mountainous spur by the slope E.

DSC01012 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Further down, we turn suddenly to the O and are surprised by the wonderful views of the Pla de Corts, Peramea and the Geganta Adormida.

DSC01013 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We continue downhill among rosemary bushes

DSC01017 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and some scorched logs, remains of a burnt pine forest.

DSC01018 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We crossed the llau del Llop -which is the name given to dry ravines in this area-

DSC01019 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we went under some big limestone walls.

DSC01023 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We walk along a pretty cobbled path

DSC01031 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
while we are going around the Rock of Sant Pere Vell.

DSC01037 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Little by little we are approaching the nucleus of Balestui,

DSC01039 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
we passed by a cow farm

DSC01041 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we cross the road.

DSC01043 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We make a few last meters and enter the charming village of Balestui (7:55 - 865m).

DSC01044 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We left the nucleus of houses by the side of the remains of the church, without worship and half demolished,

DSC01049 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we went through a cobbled stretch

DSC01055 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
until a small wooden bridge that crosses the river of Ancs.

DSC01058 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
THE EMPIRED ROADS

Just as we left Balestui by the old road from Balestui to Peramea, we passed a stretch of cobbled road very well preserved. We find the cobblestones on the steepest sections of the Pallars roads, in order to facilitate the march to the cargo cattle. The cobblestone is made up of batten -the big stones that are placed transversely to the road- that contributes solidity, fixes the road and helps to stop the cattle if it slips, and the engravat -the small stones that are placed neatly between batten and batén- . The old road of Balestui was a traditional means of communication used from the Middle Ages to the 20th century by the inhabitants of the area and by the muleteers, shepherds and merchants who traveled through these territories.

Now we are entering a stress-free zone.

DSC01062 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Once crossed the river of Ancs, we started to climb through a beautiful holm oak forest.

DSC01067 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We leave behind a junction and the path of the farmhouse of Enjaume and Bretui, and we continue towards Peramea.

DSC01071 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We arrived at a small hill and started to go down towards the Pla de Corts, where we already spotted Peramea.

DSC01074 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We turn left towards Peramea.

DSC01078 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We passed through an area with cereal fields

DSC01085 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
and we make some last meters of ascent until the precious closed village of Peramea (8: 50h - 902m).

DSC01095 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
The square of Peramea

DSC01096 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We cross the nucleus passing in front of the fountain of the square and the Elm of Peramea.

DSC01097 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We turn left towards the cemetery and, in the middle of the street, just behind some rubbish bins, we take the path of Gerri de la Sal.

DSC01098 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We approach the last section of the day, which will take us to Gerri de la Sal. We descend gently between meadows, we pass by a house and then we connect with the road.

DSC01103 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
We follow the asphalted road to our left, we make a straight line along the road and, just as it is turning, we take a path that goes up and that allows us to make a shortcut. Further on we return to connect with the asphalted road, where we move a few more meters until, after a bend, we recover the road (right).

DSC01123 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea(1).JPG
We descend decidedly by the stony skirt and covered with grass of the mountain.

DSC01127 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
The monastery of Gerri de la Sal.

DSC01141 senderismo Sort a Gerri de la Sal per Estac Mencui i Peramea.JPG
Finally, we enter Gerri de la Sal through an alley and we plant ourselves in the center of town.
