Stage 5: Montcortès Lake
In the final stage, we will exit Senterada in the direction of the campsite and then head towards Puigcerver; however, after a few metres, we will take the old Montcortès path, which passes alongside the Comadars ravine until Mentui. From here, we will continue towards Mentui hill to finally come to the Fifth Lake, Montcortès lake.
We will carry on in the direction of Canals, taking the steps known as Les Escales de Peracalç again, which we will have already taken on the first leg of the hike, and continue along the old Peracalç path to Montsor, which runs much higher above the Peracalç farmhouse.
From Montsor, we have two options to return to La Pobla de Segur:
- Over the Gelat crest, which is only suitable for expert hikers that do not suffer from vertigo.
- Over the old Montsor path to La Pobla de Segur, which descends the section that was ascended on the first leg.
