About Pyrenees mountain hiking Puigmal Sumit From Nuria Resort

Puigmal summit is is one of the higher peaks in the pyrenees at just under 3000 metres above sea level (2913m) and is on the French border giving fantastic 360 panoramic views of both the spanish and french mountains.

I have two routes for this walk. The first route is a short 9Km starting and finishing in Nuria Resort climbing up to the Puigmal summit and returning via the same route. A MEDIUM level of fitness is requred and takes 5-7 hours to complete. The second 19km route is a bit harder starting at Nuria Resort and ascending to Puigmal summit then returning via the ridgeline down to Queralbs. This route requires more physical endurance and takes 6-8 hours to complete.

For experienced mountain hikers the longer route of 18km can be found on this link. The shorter 10Km route can be found on the wikiloc tab of this page.

It is very important not to loose track of time on both routes and miss the cremallera before the last train.

Accessibility, mobility & Clothing for Puigmal Sumit From Vall De Nuria

I pack for wind and rain when doing this hike because it is in the high Pyrenees mountains.

I recommend 2-3 litres of water because there is nowhere to top up water bottles along the route.

If doing this as a winter hike, I recommend crampons for added traction because there will be snow and ice patches on the uphill section which are tricky to traverse without crampons.
